How can I join ELTABB?

Step 1: Fill out the Membership Application Form

Just download our Membership Application Form, fill it out, then scan and email it to our Membership Coordinator at or send it by post to the address on the form. Don’t forget to also fill out the second page – the Direct Debit Authorization Form, to have the membership fee automatically withdrawn from your account each year. If you do not yet have a German bank account, please contact the Membership Coordinator for instructions on submitting a manual payment. Memberships can be cancelled by sending an email with the cancellation request to the Membership Coordinator before December 1, to take effect the following January.

Step 2: Send your profile and photo for the ELTABB website

As a benefit of your new ELTABB membership, you may post a short bio and photo on the Teachers page of our website, which can be found by employers searching for English trainers. If you would like to have your bio and photo included, please send a 100–150 word bio and headshot photo to our Web Admin at Members typically include information about their background, areas of interest, and even a link to a private website or blog.

Step 3: Set up your Ning profile and start networking with other trainers!

Once your membership application has been processed, you will receive an invitation to join the Ning, our internal discussion forum. There you can browse job postings, post discussions, RSVP to events, and connect with other ELTABBers. You will also be added to our email list to receive our monthly newsletter. Looking forward to meeting you soon!
