How do I become a member?

NYTM is quite popular and in order to serve our current members effectively, we've had to significantly limit the number of new members we admit. Please understand that there is an application process and a waitlist to join NYTM. There are hundreds of Toastmasters clubs to choose from in Manhattan. If you wish to get started right away check them out by using the Toastmasters' "Find a club" feature.

That said, here are the basic steps to apply for membership to NYTM:
  1. Attend five meetings as a guest. Please note that you have to be registered on Eventbrite for your five meeting attendances to be recognized.
  2. After attending those meetings, contact our VP of Membership, to indicate your desire to be placed on our waiting list. The average time to become a member is around 3-6 months after you are placed on the waitlist.
  3. Pay our Membership Fee
  4. And finally! Become an active, proactive, and positive participant of our meetings and be a part of our community.

What are your fees to become a new member?

Our membership fees are based off a yearly enrollment. The Annual fee for new members is currently $220/yr. This fee is pro-rated depending on the month you are admitted.

Do you offer private lessons?

We are a non-profit organization and do not offer private public speaking courses.
