Club Deadlines and Reminders:

1. It is not too late to submit your club dues to Toastmasters International!  Please be sure to also submit your club's dues to YACT!

Club officers: Visit the YACT Info page for instructions to submit your club's YACT dues.  The dues for the Yukon-Alaska Council of Toastmasters are due the same time at Toastmasters dues - April and October.   Bills are not sent out for YACT dues.

Dues can be paid one of three methods:

  • Mail a check to our YACT Secretary with a list of current members
  • Deposit the proper amount to the YACT account followed by an email stating when this was done and the names of the members who are renewing.
  • Request and electronic transfer from your club bank account in to the YACT account ($.50 service charge does apply).  If your club has already set this up in the past, all that is needed to proceed with this option is an email with the names of your renewing members.  If your club has not done this in the past, you will need to complete an authorization form. 

2. Confirm your club mailing information and member contact information is current

Don't forget to update your club contact and mailing information and member contact information on TI's website. This is one of the ways prospective guests and members find your club. After you log in to TI's website, click Club Central on the left hand side of the screen. On the Conduct Club Business page:

    • Update my club meeting information:
      • Is your club contact information current?
      • Is your meeting information correct?
    • Are your club specifics up to date?
    • Update my club mailing address - this is the address TI uses to send correspondance, annual Club officer handbooks, speech contest rules, etc.

Note: TI links information from the "club meeting information" option in Club Center to their find a club page. Changes to Club Central take 2-3 business days before the changes are reflected on the "Find a Club" webpage, so be sure to update this information so you don't miss any calls, emails, visits, etc. from prospective and/or current members!

Note: It is critical member contact information is current. Council leadership periodically receive membership rosters and club officer lists from Toastmasters International (TI). The contact information received from TI is used to send out correspondance, trainging information, etc. to members so please help us ensure memebrs receive information regarding educational opportunities, etc.!
