Paying with a purchase order

Will your school district pay for your conference fees through a purchase order?

Excellent! Upon registration, you should complete the section on paying through a purchase order. You will need to provide the name and address of your school district, and the name, email and phone number of the district employee responsible for fulfilling purchase orders and invoices. Then, upon registration, you will be able to download PO instructions and a letter for your school district. An invoice for your conference fees will be emailed to you. You will talk to your district and provide this information in order to obtain a purchase order document (PO).

You will send the purchase order document to, or bring it with you to the conference. If you do not provide the PO, you are responsible to pay the conference fee on site. Finally, your school district will remit payment in the form of a check to NYS TESOL within thirty days after the conference, by December 16, 2019.

If your district does not pay, you will be responsible for your conference fees. Regular cancellation fees and deadlines apply.

It is a little complicated, but it’s worth it! If you have questions about this process, please email or
