Please submit the payment to our bank account.

Blue Danube Speakers Linz charges a membership fee of 13.33 € per month, payable twice a year (i.e. 80 € per semester). The fee must be paid into our account by April 1st and October 1st at the latest. If you join during a term, we can sign you up from the following month; the remaining fee in that case is 10 € times the number of months left in the term.

We charge an additional registration fee of 20 € for first-time members of Toastmasters International. If you have already been a member of any recognized club worldwide, this fee is waived.

4 Give your first speech

Your first speech will be the Icebreaker. It is a 5-6 Minutes speech on any topic, but typically, you would introduce yourself (talk about who you are, where you are from, what your interests are, what your motivation to join Toastmasters is, etc.)

You can find more about it here

5 Get started with Pathways

Once you have a account - a few days after you paid your membership fees - you should select a Path in the Pathways system on - go to "Pathways Basecamp" and either take the assessment, or select a path based on the descriptions.

Our Tools

At Blue Danube Speakers, you will use two different kinds of accounts:

This is the official Toastmasters website. You will need to be a registered member to have access. VP Membership will create your account once you have paid your fees. On that System, you will have access to the Pathways system.

This is an unofficial system that we use to schedule our meetings. Officers can give you access any time - they will need your valid e-mail-address for that. Use that system prior to a meeting (more than 24 hours prior) to sign up for a role like Timer, Ah-Counter, etc.

We have prepared several educational videos to help you get started with your Toastmasters journey here at Blue Danube Speakers.
