We ask you to attend two meetings as a guest before applying for membership.
For prospective members who have not given at least 6 speeches in Toastmasters, there is an additional step. To request a waiver of that requirement, you must make a 1-2 minute speech about why you want to join and what you can contribute to the club. We look for things like other relevant experience. If a majority of the board approves, we will send you the information about joining.
Once you are invited to join, we need two things from you.
- A completed application
- An initial dues payment
Please complete and return this membership application. If you are an established Toastmaster, it helps if you give us your member ID #
(appears above your name on the Toastmasters Magazine mailing label) or the email that Toastmasters International has on file for you. That makes it easier to look up your records.
Do not include a credit card number on the form. Use the secure online payment method, below.
Either add a digital signature to the PDF or print, sign, and send a scanned copy: click here to email.
Pay Dues Online or By Check
Toastmasters pay dues twice per year, in April and October, with the fees for other months prorated according to the day you join. Please pay online or send a check to the address at the bottom of the page. (Members paying their dues renewal, please see op.toastmost.org/renew).
You should see a confirmation message with a transaction ID code as verification that your payment went through.

We currently collect the dues we must pay on your behalf by Toastmasters International, marked up just enough to cover the transaction fees of our online payment processor. Thanks to a donation of our online meeting platform by RingCentral, the club so far has not found it necessary to collect additional club dues. However, members should understand the club may have a need to raise funds in the future on an as-needed basis, for example if the RingCentral agreement should come to an end or if other expenses become an issue.
Because Online Presenters does not have a bank account of its own, charter dues are being collected by Carr Communications Inc. (the company of club sponsor and Charter year President David F. Carr).
As an alternative to an online payment, checks may be made payable to:
Carr Communications Inc.
971 NW 124 Ave.
Coral Springs FL 33071
Include “Online Presenters Toastmasters” in the memo field.
Dues are calculated based on Toastmasters International dues (“Base Dues”), plus the transaction fees charged for online payments.
When you join in February or March, we include your renewal for the April – September period with the dues collected. When you join in August or September, we include the October renewal payment.
