Dues Increase Effective October 1, 2016
Beginning in October 2016, individual members’ dues will increase to US $45.00 each semiannual period. This is equivalent to US $7.50 per month.
By every measure, Toastmasters International is at the most successful point in our 92-year history. Membership is the highest it’s ever been—more than 330,000 individuals currently participate—and members receive the most comprehensive and high-quality service the organization has ever offered.
To sustain this success we must continue to improve and modernize the member experience. This involves taking the necessary steps to meet your needs, enhance the organization’s efforts related to club excellence and bolster member engagement and achievement.
To achieve these objectives, we must invest in the initiatives laid out in the Board of Directors’ 2015 Strategic Plan. These initiatives include upgrading our infrastructure to meet the needs of our growing organization, revitalizing our education program and expanding our technology; particularly our digital offerings.
Although the organization is financially strong, these investments in our future are forecasted to increase annual expenses over annual revenues. The Board of Directors, acting to ensure the organization’s ongoing financial health as well as the highest quality in member services and support, made the decision to increase membership dues. Beginning in October 2016, individual members’ dues will increase to US $45.00 each semiannual period. This is equivalent to US $7.50 per month.
Toastmasters continues to be the best value in communication and leadership development you can find. The benefits of this increased funding will enhance the member experience for years to come and empower current and future members to achieve their personal and professional goals.
