Since its inception in 1995, the City Club of Boise has hosted more than 250 forums on a variety of subjects. Our average attendance is more than 200 people. City Club also hosts occasional member events.


Forums, which include lunch, typically cost $20 for members and $27 for non-members. There is a $5 or $10 fee to listen only (no meal). Student Members with a valid student ID can attend for $10. For those hoping to purchase a table of 10, the cost is $350-$400.


City Club also hosts member-only Salons, Tours, and After Hour events throughout the year available to City Club Members.
