City Club of Central Oregon is a nonprofit, nonpartisan civic affairs organization that promotes active citizenship to build a stronger community.

The mission of the City Club of Central Oregon is “to build a conscious and civic minded community through dialog, education and research that results in responsible civic engagement.”

To fulfill our mission, we produce forums on a range of topics for a variety of audiences. The backbone of our programming is our monthly forum, a luncheon program devoted to significant concerns to our community.

City Club of Central Oregon exists to be the top-of-mind hub for citizens and community leaders. We intentionally shape our community and influence public policy while preserving our uniquely warm and connected culture. We champion “passionately non-partisan” discussion between diverse perspectives.

Accordingly, the City Club of Central Oregon has articulated several goals:

  • To build a conscious and civic minded community, aware of our individual and collective impact as citizens

  • To stimulate dialog on subjects that matter in our region and communities in a manner that honors diverse perspectives

  • To promote informed community decision making and constructive action

  • To optimize the civic health of our region through inspired civic conversation

  • To forge new relationships within the Central Oregon Community that serve as a foundation for effective engagement and optimum development

  • To help grow the next generation of civic-minded leaders in our region

  • Focus with other organizations on building a community by design
