Membership also builds your credibility. When you say, “I’m a member of City Club,” you convey to your colleagues, friends, neighbors and elected officials that you value civil discourse and believe an informed citizenry benefits the community.
MOST IMPORTANTLY, your City Club Membership strengthens your community.
City Club membership expands the Club's capacity to convene programs
like Friday Forums while broadcasting them on OPB so that tens of thousands of
citizens across the state can LISTEN.
City Club membership sustains the Club's citizen-led research studies and
ballot measure analyses that help every citizen LEARN.
City Club membership builds our entire community's capacity for citizens to LEAD
in finding solutions to the challenges we face.
"City Club was my first real professional organization given my young age. I learned a lot from City Club. I consider myself a life-long learner, and thus learning from City Club was a great joy. Perhaps equally as insightful was what I witnessed City Club do and accomplish in the name of active citizenship. From forums to informal gatherings, there was always an opportunity to make manifest the glory of what Aristotle and others depicted as the "good life" through serving the betterment of the community in which we live."
