NYS TESOL is thrilled to announce that the 51st Annual Conference will be hybrid, with virtual and in-person options.  We are offering three full days of workshops, plenary speakers, and practical sessions.  This year we will also have virtual, international site visits, an administrator ENL boot camp (to get you up to speed on ENL regulations and best practices), and speed networking sessions.  Plus, be sure to join us for our dinner and dance party on Friday night!  We currently have a LIMITED NUMBER of seats available so don't delay!  You may register for:

  • Virtual Day (Thursday, November 4) - Participate from the comfort of your own home via zoom. ($85 for members / $95 for non-members)
  • Virtual Day (Thursday, November 4) plus ONE in-person day (either Friday, November 5 or Saturday, November 6) at the Sonesta Hotel in White Plains, NY. ($265 for members / $295 for non-members)
  • Virtual Day (Thursday, November 4) plus TWO in-person days (Friday, November 5 AND Saturday, November 6) at the Sonesta Hotel in White Plains, NY. ($349 for members / $379 for non-members)

We are pleased to be bringing the conference back to the beautiful Sonesta Hotel in White Plains, NY (formerly the Crowne Plaza), a convenient drive or train ride from upstate or NYC.  We encourage all teachers, teacher educators, support staff, and administrators to attend the conference.  Whether you are an ENL/Bilingual teacher, an elementary teacher, a high school math teacher, an adult educator, or a college professor, we will have sessions geared toward you.  Our complete conference line-up is coming soon!  We encourage you to bring your colleagues to the conference so that you can collaborate on ways to support English Language Learners.  Also, you have the opportunity to earn up to 6 CTLE credits per day of attendance.
This year NYS TESOL is including 2022 membership to NYS TESOL with ALL conference registrations.

In addition, this year we have included breakfast and lunch in your in-person registration so that we have lots of opportunities to connect and collaborate during the conference. We hope that you will find this convenient, enjoyable, and productive!

I hope you are looking forward to the NYS TESOL 51st Annual Conference as much as we are!  Please share this conference information with anyone in your network who may be interested in attending!  If you have any questions, please email
