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.”


City Club is now holding in-person, livestream and recorded versions of our forums. We are currently requiring full COVID-19* vaccination or proof of a negative COVID-19 within 48 hours of the forum (click here for testing sites) for those attending in-person. This policy will be reviewed on a monthly basis.

*Per CDC, a person is considered fully vaccinated 2 weeks after completion of a two-dose mRNA series or one dose of Janssen vaccine.
