Welcome Members!

This is the NEW website for City Club of Portland. We are rolling out phases of site production from March through June. In April we invite all members to review and update their profiles, reserve event tickets, and peruse the new site. You can help us perfect this site by sending us your notes. If you find a glitch, a broken link, or simply have a great suggestion, please email us at info@pdxcityclub.org. We'd appreciate it!

For 98 years, the City Club has helped shape what Portland is today through research, advocacy and public forums.

But City Club is not about looking back.
We are here to tackle the tough problems we are facing now.

Like, how do we improve education, clean up the polluted Willamette River Harbor, keep a diversity of income-earners in our neighborhoods in the face of gentrification, increase equity, grow jobs and increase innovation?

Government cannot solve these issues alone. Nor should it.

That is why we need YOUR support. And there is no better time to save money on your membership.

Sign up HERE.

City Club is pushing to make Portland better right now. More than 200 members and volunteers are researching or advocating solutions to local problems. Like:

  • How can healthcare reforms best help people who face homelessness and physical, mental and addiction illness?
  • How can state agencies give Oregon's 265,000 high school drop-outs a better chance to get the education they need?
  • With drinking water flouridation off the table, what are the most cost-effective and politically viable options to improve children's dental health?

Love Portland Back.
