If you are interested in purchasing membership (you can do so via this website), here are a few points for you to take note.
Basic membership: 5£
This is the basic fee that signs you up as a member of Imperial College Speakers. This membership is limited to members of Imperial College Union, which is open to all students, staff and alumni (which includes anyone who has been a student for at least one academic year) of Imperial College and its associated universities. All Imperial College students are automatically members of Imperial College Union. If you are unsure of whether you can be a member of Imperial College Union, please check the Imperial College Union website.
It allows you to participate in the Table Topic sessions (aka impromptu speaking) in our meetings, where you get to speak on a random topic curated to suit the theme of each meeting. You will receive constructive feedback on your speech about what you have done well and what you could improve on.
Toastmasters Membership (New Member): 25£
If you are interested to participate in the prepared speeches or to play any of the many roles on offer in our meetings (we will provide more details on how to do this), you need to sign up for a Toastmaster membership.
For those who are entirely new and have never signed up to Toastmasters before in any way, you need to pay an one-off fee, which we will use to help you get registered as a member of our club under the world-recognised Toastmasters International. Please be sure to buy BOTH the products in our website (one doesn’t work without the other!).
Once the total amount is paid, you will receive two manuals, the Competent Communication and Competent Leadership manuals which will be the guide to your Toastmaster career (more info). You will also be entitled to a one-year subscription to the monthly Toastmasters magazine.
Toastmasters Annual Membership: 69£ and Early Birds £56 for first 25 buyers!
Those who were already registered with Toastmasters earlier on, whether or not it was with Imperial College Speakers, need only pay the fee which we will use to renew your existing membership. For those who were members of other Toastmasters club, please drop us an email, as it is possible transfer your membership from your previous club to ours if you are interested.
