CONVERSATION CREATES 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.

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 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.


In light of current events, City Club of Central Oregon is going virtual until further notice.
