Should I join Toastmasters?

Is Toastmasters worth it? My idle googlefinger has unearthed a local club within easy walking distance. It's 2 Tuesday evenings a month and seems to have homework.
I am a busy activist who will be shortly working a full time job as well. I absolutely adore public speaking and am very good at it according to other people. Public speaking is a big part of my activist work, and increased communication skills will benefit all parts of my life.
I'm looking to increase my consistency, clarity, and persuasiveness and to find and develop my own style. I'm looking to increase my capability of remembering facts, figures, and arguments without notes. Will Toastmasters do this?
Comments from people who've participated in Toastmasters would be especially appreciated.
