Membership Dues

The Toastmasters membership year runs from October 1st to September 30th. To ease administration, we collect membership dues on an annual basis by September 30th each year. The cost for new members joining our Club at other times is prorated to September 30th, plus a one-time fee for a New Member Kit (charged by Toastmasters International). The membership fee covers each member's dues to Toastmasters International and to our club's operations (mainly the meeting-room rental, and also supplies).

The cost to join Toronto Business Toastmasters Club in 2015-2016 is $375.00 per year, plus (if applicable) a one-time fee of $25 for the New Member Kit (Competent Communication Manual and Competent Leadership Manual, sent by post from Toastmasters International).

Lunch

Members can bring their own lunch to the meetings.
Water is available. We usually have cookies or snacks.

Commitment Expected

Our club is made up of a variety of business men and women who have busy schedules. Many members have accommodated the meetings as part of their development plans and others try to attend as often as possible. This is an investment in you – the more you put into it, the more you will get out of it. You will discover your own unique speaking style but you need to practice to improve. Each meeting provides numerous speaking opportunities – chairing and hosting a meeting, delivering reflection and toast, tip, word of the day, humour, as well as impromptu speaking, delivering a prepared speech and giving effective evaluations.

Experience Level in the Club

At present, we have balanced experience in our Club. There are members who are starting out, half way or closing in their Competent Communicator award (CC) and others who have their CC’s and are working on the 3 levels of Advanced Communicator (AC) awards. By actively participating in each meeting, members are able to polish and enhance the skills they already have and learn new ones. The idea is to raise the bar a little every time you get up to speak.

When You Become a Member

When you join, you will receive a New Member Kit in the mail from Toastmasters International and your name will be added to their mailing list for 'The Toastmaster' magazine. 

In the meantime, your Ice Breaker will be scheduled, you can participate in Table Topics and take on a meeting role such as timing the speeches, presenting the reflection and toast, word, tip,                             or humour of the day.

You Can Contribute to the Success of the Club

  • By achieving your educational goals of CC, AC-B, AC-S, AC-G at your own pace
