Who can join?

Anyone over 18! Most people come visit the club as a guest 2-3 times to determine whether it's right for them. If you feel that you can benefit from Toastmasters (and I'm sure you can!), then come by any Tuesday to a meeting!

How does Toastmasters work?

We meet once a week for an hour and a half (Tuesdays, from 6:00 to 7:30 pm). Each meeting has a specific program and members take on different roles to practice speaking.

Everyone goes at their own pace - you start speaking when you feel ready. You will also receive great manuals to guide you along the way (your first ten speeches) and help you master the secrets of public speaking.

To start with you can visit as a guest without any obligation (and no - you will not have to speak if you don't want to).

How much are dues?

Membership is affordable:

  • $20 one-time new member fee
  • $51 dues every six months

You get your initial six-month membership with the weekly meetings, all the materials you need to keep you busy for months, subscription to monthly Toastmasters International magazine with tons of great articles and tips on public speaking, and camaraderie with like-minded people.

What's even better - your next six months of membership will cost you even less.
