Friday Forums, our lunchtime lecture series, engage audiences in issues of significance, prominence, urgency and humanity. From speeches by government and community leaders, to panel discussions about health, arts, technology and more, Friday Forums give complex subjects relevance and clarity, and keep Oregonians informed. City Club welcomes members and nonmembers to Friday Forums.
The Friday Forum Committee chooses the topics and speakers who present and co-sponsor. The Committee seeks over time to offer a diversity of perspectives. Unless noted, the topics and opinions expressed at City Club of Portland events are those of the speakers and not necessarily those of the City Club of Portland.
