Enroll

Visit Spirited Speech Masters for one of our online meetings any Thursday from noon to 1PM. You are welcome to observe and/or participate, as you prefer. During your visit, a member of the executive committee will provide you a copy of our enrollment application (also downloadable as a fillable PDF here) and answer any questions you might have.

Program Enrollment

Enrollment fees are $57 every 6 months, although this amount is pro-rated should you join in any month other than October or April (see the table below). New members also pay a new enrollment fee of $20 that includes the cost of their first educational Path. For example, someone enrolling for the first time during the month of October would pay $77 ($45 to TMI + $12 to SSM + $20 new enrollment fee).
