Glen Abbey Toastmasters and Toastmasters International are non profit organizations. Membership fees are based solely on recovering anticipated club expenses.
The major portion of the fees pertain to the cost of meeting room rental and club supplies, followed by Toastmasters International dues and subsequently expenses relating to club and area level speech contests.
The annual membership fee is based on a 10-month season (September to June following) and is payable when you join and then annually every September. Fees for the second year of your membership are prorated to the beginning of the regular season, ie. September. (For example, a person joining during January would have their second year's fees prorated over 6 months, January to June.) Memberships can be paid by cash or cheque (made payable to Glen Abbey Toastmasters). Receipts are issued to members.
