This plugin adds Toastmasters-specific functions to your WordPress website. Once you activate RSVPMaker for Toastmasters, a series of prompts guide you through the process of installing and activating the other required and recommended software and setting up your home page and meetings schedule. See this video for a preview.
This demo of the hosted version at Toastmost.org covers the key features.
As an alternative to other club web software options that include a custom content management system, this WordPress-based solution allows website operators to take advantage of the same technology that powers major publishing websites (newyorker.com and time.com, for example) and countless blogs, small business websites, and online marketing campaigns. That makes it a more powerful tool for recruiting new members and showcasing what makes your club special.
Part of a broader WordPress for Toastmasters solution, this plugin lets members sign up for roles on the website. Meeting organizers can also assign members to roles. In addition, club leaders can track member participation and performance through the administrator’s dashboard.
Dues collection and dues tracking are enabled through integration with the Stripe and PayPal online payment services.
The related Lectern WordPress theme makes it easy to meet Toastmasters International branding guidelines with your WordPress website, adding the logo and the required legal disclaimers.

RSVPMaker for Toastmasters is an extension of RSVPMaker, a general purpose event scheduling and RSVP tracking plugin. This means you can also use your website to manage other types of events, beyond club meetings, such as open house or training events. RSVPMaker can be configured to allow you to accept online payments via PayPal. Documentation at RSVPMaker.com
