How to Visit or Join

Every Toastmasters journey begins with a single speech. During your journey, you learn to tell your stories. You listen and answer. You plan and lead. You give feedback—and accept it. Through our community of learners, you find your path to leadership.

Join us any Friday morning before 7:15 am (U.S. Pacific, we suggest 7:05 am), and enjoy the next 1 hour 15 minutes of meeting. You are welcome to visit as many times as you wish, and it is a good idea to visit several clubs if you are considering becoming a member.

Memberships cost $51 for 6 months (plus a one-time $20 new member fee) and include all learning materials, plus access to your Pathways online portal. The Toastmasters online learning experience is an exciting, flexible, and interactive way to develop your speaking and leadership skills.

Once you join you will have the option of having a mentor who will guide you through your first “Ice Breaker” speech and the meeting roles. As you’ll see in the sample Agenda, each meeting has a specific format with assigned roles that rotate weekly. Ultimately you, too, will lead a meeting as its Toastmaster!
