Springfield City Club regularly holds programs from noon to 1:00 p.m. on the first and third Thursday of each month (although there may be occasional adjustments). All programs are open to the public. While we look forward to being able to meet in person at some time in the future, at present, all meetings are held as Zoom webinars. Invitations are sent to all those on  our mailing list, so please sign up if you wish to receive an invitation
