About the Springfield City Club

Our Mission:

To promote leadership and vision for Springfield by bringing together the community for open dialogue and civic engagement, the Springfield City Club is a vibrant organization which provides its members with thought provoking programs and discussions of community issues.

City Club brings important conversations featuring prominent speakers on topics ranging from new technologies to livable cities, from art to politics. Through its many varied programs, City Club improves communication throughout the community, informing the public and inspiring civic engagement

Chicago began the first city club in 1903 to influence the greater community good away from the crime and corruption of politics. Since then many cities across the United States have developed their own city clubs to enhance civil dialogue on important issues. Oregon cities include; Eugene, Portland, Central Oregon, McMinnville, Salem and Corvallis.


Taking its cue from other established City Clubs around the country, The City Club of Springfield is governed by a volunteer board and is supported by membership dues.

City Club meets for lunch on the first and third Thursday of each month. A speaker or panel of speakers addresses the group for about 30 minutes, followed by questions from the audience for another 15–30 minutes allowing for lively discussion.

The programs are open to the public.

Admission is free for members, and $10 for non-members Lunch is available for $11 in advance with on line registration, and $13 at the door. Students may purchase combination admission and lunch for $10. Members can bring “first time” nonmember guests for $5 off the nonmember admission price.
