Have you signed up to concur lately? If not, the link is below:


Remember, Concur is the tool of choice to process your expenses, there is no manual expense reporting system. When you first log in, your username will be your membership number @ toastmasters.org with a few exceptions.  If your member number is less than 8 digits, you will need to add leading zeros to equal to 8 digits.  So if your membership number was 1-2-3-4-5-6.  You would add two zeros to the front making your number 0-0-1-2-3-4-5-6.

The initial password is the same for everyone, “welcome”. Then you will be prompted to change your password. It’s way easier and you get reimbursed directly to your bank account.

Do it sooner than later as it takes approximately 4 days to get your banking ability setup
