The work we do at our non-profit organization is aimed at providing our community access to leaders, speakers, and spaces that come from any quarter. Through lunch forums, tours, and after-hours civic programs, City Club of Boise examines issues of importance to our growing community and cultivates dialog. Since the Club's inception in 1995, the City Club of Boise has hosted more than 400 events on a variety of subjects.
The longest running program offered by City Club of Boise, is the midday lunch forum- which is convened virtually since April 2020. At least fourteen forums are offered each year. A wide array of individuals, including policy makers, business and community leaders as well as students, teachers, and the general public frequent the public lunch forum. Pre-registration is required for virtual conversations or lunch, and listen-only registrations are available. Completed forum audio may be found on our website within past forums as well as on our YouTube channel.
City Club members have the opportunity to tour interesting and unique places and spaces all over the Valley. These in-depth tours are led by owners, on-site managers, engineers, artistic directors, and knowledgeable guides. Preregistration is required and some tours require a hard hat.
At City Club of Boise, we are dedicated to stepping up our efforts in addressing local issues. Salons allow members (and sometimes one guest) to discuss a topic with a speaker in a more intimate setting than a forum. Preregistration is required.
Upcoming Events Calendar
This member invitational event is designed to bring differing, and potentially contentious view points to the table. Our hope is that this intimate setting will open the doors for even more engaged citizenry in our community around relevant and difficult topics. We ask guests of Evening Conversations to be respectful of other's opinions during the engaged dialog during these conversations. Preregistration is required.
City Club of Boise hosts three signature events a year. In November we honor a Stimpson awardee, in January you can hear from a panel on legislative topics by the Pundits, and in spring we host the Marilyn Shuler Forum where a human rights speaker addresses the audience and a student is highlighted for their contributions to the human rights in our community. Preregistration is required.
A refund may be issued if we receive notice at least 3 days prior to the event. Cancellations received fewer than 3 days prior to the event will be refunded only if we are able to fill your reservation from the waiting list or if there has been unforeseen extenuating circumstances around your cancellation. Alternatively, your payment may be recognized as a donation to City Club, and you will receive a donation confirmation that you may use for tax purposes. If you have questions, please contact City Club.
