Membership of your state or territory association also means that you are part of ACTA, an affiliate organisation of two global professional associations, TESOL International and IATEFL.

TESOL International

TESOL International (Teachers of English to Speakers of Other Languages International Association) is a well-established organisation based in the USA and a global TESOL community of over 14,000 TESOL associations worldwide. Currently, TESOL International represents 162 countries. It has a very well regarded academic journal (TESOL Quarterly) which has, over the years, published a number of landmark articles. It also holds an annual Convention in March each year. If you would like to know more about TESOL International and benefits of membership, take a look at the information on the TESOL International website.

ACTA is an affiliate of TESOL International, but it is a separate organisation and you must join TESOL International separately to become a member.

International Association of Teachers of English as a Foreign Language (IATEFL)

As a member of one of the ACTA-affiliated Australian state/territory associations, you can join IATEFL (the International Association of Teachers of English as a Foreign Language) at a special discounted rate. This entitles you to Basic Membership – you receive the regular magazines (Voices), discounts to conferences and publications etc – the main things that a Basic Membership does not include are complimentary membership of a Special Interest Group and the book of highlights from the annual Conference. If you would like to know more about IATEFL and benefits of membership, take a look at the information on the IATEFL website. If you would take up the IATEFL Basic Membership, forms for ACTA-affiliated association members to use are available from the Secretary of your state/territory association.

ACTA is an affiliate of IATEFL, but it is a separate organisation and you must join IATEFL separately to become a member.
