Why should you renew your Toastmasters membership?
In these challenging times it is more important than ever to invest in yourself, upskill yourself and hone your skills. Why do I say this?
- The Toastmaster programme gives you the ability to stand out from your peers.
- This programme has given many of our members opportunities and promotions that they would not have had without the skills they honed or developed during their journey.
- If you are an entrepreneur, you will learn skills that will help you improve your bottom line.
- If you are looking for a new job, the skills you learn by working through the programme will set you apart from the other applicants.
These are just a few of the reasons that you should budget for your semi-annual Toastmasters dues. Remember that the budget for investing in yourself should be greater than your entertainment budget.
Your Toastmasters semi-annual dues is equivalent to the monthly payment of Netflix!!
If you are in a situation where you need assistance, then reach out to the Garmeson Trust. The application form can be found at https://www.toastmasters74.org/financial-assistance/
A few years ago, I was in a very difficult financial situation and reached out to the Garmeson Trust for help and it was the best decision I made as I could continue my Toastmaster Journey until I was back on my feet. Asking for help is a sign of strength and not a sign of weakness.
