Seattle CityClub Programs

Seattle CityClub offers several monthly, annual, and customized program options throughout the course of the year:

Civic Cocktail

Civic Cocktail is a monthly event featuring in-depth discussions with community leaders, policymakers and journalists about important issues impacting the Puget Sound region.

Civic Boot Camp

Civic Boot Camp is a unique, full-day experience where participants connect with local leaders, network across sectors and gain a deep understanding of the rich history, economic opportunities, community partnerships and policy decisions shaping communities in the Puget Sound region.

Civically Engaged Youth Council (CEYC)

In 2024, Seattle CityClub is launching its Civically Engaged Youth Council (CEYC). The CEYC will be comprised of high school and college aged students across Western and Central Washington. Led by its peers, the CEYC will be provided opportunities to examine the value and impediments of free speech; discuss and learn about national and international issues of critical importance; and be challenged to discover ways in which they can actively participate in public life.

Legislative Preview

Seattle CityClub’s Legislative Preview has been a signature Seattle event for decades. The forum features the top leadership from the Washington State Legislature on both sides of the aisle. Moderated by leading regional journalists, our discussion takes an in-depth look at the top priorities for the upcoming session and the impact it will have on individuals and the community at large.

WA State Debate Coalition

We know that a healthy democracy and a strong community depend on active, informed and interested citizens. This is why we have established the Washington State Debate Coalition. The Coalition will host free, nonpartisan, publicly accessible debates.

Year In Review

Seattle CityClub’s annual Year in Review is the time to reflect on the pressing issues and major headlines of the previous year, revisit predictions and see how events changed or stayed the course. Moderated by a leading local journalist, our panel of leaders and luminaries engages in a provocative and wide-ranging discussion of topics like race and equity, minimum wage and affordability, trade and international affairs, education, and current legislative priorities.
