How to Maintain Your Membership with D'Utama Toastmasters

As the treasurer of the club, I would like to share with you on how to maintain your membership with D'Utama Toastmasters Club.

The membership subscription fee to Toastmasters International is due every 6 months. The semi-annual dues are from April to September and from October to March. The payment must be made to Toastmasters International by 1st April or 1st October.

Therefore, the collection of semi-annual subscription fee at our club level will start 2 months prior to the deadline set by Toastmasters International.

Hence, we would like to take this opportunity to bring the following items to your attention:

  1. Semi-Annual Membership Subscription Dues to Toastmasters International, for period from April 2008 to September 2008, is RM150.00.

  2. Prepaid Entrance Fees to our regular Thursday meetings (April 2008 - September 2008) is RM100.00 (optional).

We believe as a toastmasters member, you and I have been exposed to the international life long learning syllabus to enhanced our communication and leadership skills. In order to further develop and nurture these skills, we would encourage members to continue their membership with our Club.

As this Membership Subscription must reach Toastmasters International on time, your prompt payment is greatly appreciated. Your prompt payment will also ensure that you continue to receive, without disruption, the Toastmasters monthly magazine, amongst other benefits.

In addition, we would like to encourage you to participate in the Prepaid Entrance Fees programme of only RM100.00 for 6 months. For this period (April 2008 – September 2008), there will be about 13 meetings. This means you will save up to RM30 by prepaid system. If you choose to join this programme, your payment of the Semi Annual Membership Subscription and Prepaid Entrance Fees will be a total of RM250.00.

Kindly take note that any payment later than 30th April 2008 will subject to re-instatement fee of RM50.00.

Mode of Payment:

  1. Cash payable during Club regular meetings (1st, 3rd and 5th Thursday of every month)

  2. Issue a cheque payable to D'Utama Toastmasters Club.
    a) by hand during club meetings; or
    b) by post
    The Treasurer, Marcus Loi, No. 34, Jalan 1, Kg. Cheras Baru, 56100 Kuala Lumpur.
    Note: Please remember to write your name on the reverse side of the cheque

Finally, we would like to wish all members Happy Chinese New Year, Happy Holiday and Happy Valentine Day.

Thank you.

Yours truly,
