Fees

The total semi-annual cost of membership in Arcadia Toastmasters and Toastmasters International is approximately $60 (or $120 per year). This is remarkably affordable, especially considering that other professional development programs in public speaking can range in the hundreds to thousands of dollars for a single workshop or week-long course. Once you join Arcadia Toastmasters , we are confident that you will experience a value many times greater than your monetary investment.

Toastmasters International

  • If you are joining as a new Toastmaster, you will pay $20 to Toastmasters International for registration and your new member kit, which includes your speaking and leadership manuals.
    • If you are already an active Toastmaster (i.e. belong to multiple clubs or transferring between clubs), you will not pay this fee.
  • Toastmasters International charges all members semi-annual dues of $45. These are due on April 1 ($45) and October 1 ($45) of each year. Hence, the annual cost of membership is $90.
    • Your semi-annual dues will be prorated based on the month in which you join at a rate of US $7.50 per month. For example, if you joined in December, your semi-annual dues would be $30.
    • Note that this fee applies to existing Toastmasters. Semi-annual dues are paid for each club you join, since all clubs are assessed membership fees individually by Toastmasters International.
