Creating an Account

In order to register for a conference, submit a speaker proposal, or renew your membership, you must first have an account with the MDTESOL website.

  1. To begin, go to the homepage.
  2. Click the "Login" button in the top-right corner.
  3. Now you have reached the "Create Account" screen.
  4. Enter your email address and click the radio button next to "I need to create an account (and password)". Click the "Go" button.
  5. The website knows that your email address is not in the system, so it allows you to, upon the first visit, enter a new valid password (more details in #6).
  6. If your password is invalid, you will get a message telling you that your password MUST be at least 7 characters and include at least 1 non-alphanumeric character, i.e. a punctuation mark or similar symbol available on a regular keyboard.
    When you are certain that the "Password" and "Confirm Password" fields have the identical password, click "Create Account".
  7. Now you are logged in to the website with your new account, which is set to your email address. This is clear when the word "Login" in the top-right corner has changed to "Logout".

NOTE: The next time you see this screen you will enter your email address and your new password, and then click "Go".
