For example, a person joining Ingram Microphones Toastmasters Club in November
would pay the above $32.50 plus an additional (one-time) $20.00 new member fee,
for a total of $52.50. That person would then pay the regular dues amount of $39.00
in April along with the rest of the Club.

In some instances, dues are refundable – prospective members should inquire with
their managers about being reimbursed for Club Dues. Ingram Micro recognizes this
as Training and in most cases authorizes the dues to be reimbursed back through
Petty Cash (see our Club Treasurer for more information).
New member applications are available upon request from any Officer.
