WILL YOU BE A LIVESTREAM SUPPORTER?

City Club was deeply impacted when COVID-19 hit and the economy took a downturn. We asked for donations and many community members have contributed. They told us they believe in our mission and our work for civil discussion.

If you enjoy watching our livestreams, please become a monthly supporter. At $5, $10 or $15 per month, your contribution lets us keep the conversation going.

Welcome to City Club of Central Oregon

Our mission is “to build a conscious and civic minded community through dialog, education and research that results in responsible civic engagement.”

VIRTUAL FORUMS

Our tradition of monthly forums continues with a series of virtual events, available for free to our community. Our livestreams take place on the third Thursday of each month. Each event is an opportunity for our members and community to learn and share ideas with other civic-minded people.

Bill Buchanan, partner, Buchanan Schmid, llc

“What is most important to me about City Club is that not everyone agrees on issues. Their role, their goal is to bring people together and have the conversation  and problem solve.”
