About City Club membership

Membership is open to all who support our mission. It involves modest annual dues to pay speaker expenses and support operations. There are no additional obligations of membership, no fund raising, no work parties.

To receive notices about upcoming programs without becoming a member of City Club, please visit the Email List page and complete and submit the form.  If you have other questions about Bellingham City Club membership, please contact us.

Benefits of membership

Members receive monthly notices of upcoming programs and pay a lower lunch fee, while non-members pay an additional program fee. Members have priority in asking questions during the question period at all programs. Members are invited to attend and vote at the City Club annual meeting.

Member dues

Annual dues are $35 per year for individual memberships, $55 for a two-person household (same address), $75 for a three-person household (same address) and $10 for young adults (ages 29 and under). Dues are renewable on the anniversary of the month you joined.

If you would like to show your support for our mission by becoming a member but find our dues difficult in your current circumstances, Bellingham City Club will accept a contribution in lieu of dues. We ask only that such contribution cover our unavoidable direct costs of about $20 per member per year. There is no special application for this policy; simply write the words “Alternative Contribution” in the memo portion of your check and use the normal membership application.
