KOTESOL Membership Dues to Rise - Renew Early and Save!

KOTESOL membership dues rates will change July 1, 2015.

The KOTESOL membership dues rates have not changed since 1998, while other costs in Korea have climbed 30-60%--or more.*

This means the costs of operations, such as producing publications, hosting chapter meetings, and organizing events, have climbed while membership dues support has not kept pace.
