Seattle CityClub

Program Director

About the Organization
Founded in 1980, Seattle CityClub is a nonpartisan, nonprofit organization that informs and inspires people to engage in the most important issues facing our city, state and nation. We host local and statewide political candidate debates; dialogues held in person and later televised with influential leaders in government, business, education and civic affairs; in-depth, day-long workshops on issues like homelessness and civil rights; a survey and report on our region’s civic health that drives our programming; an annual fundraising benefit luncheon; and more. Every year, Seattle CityClub serves more than 30,000 Puget Sound residents in person and online, and our broadcasts reach 1 million Washingtonians.

We are a small and highly collaborative work team of eight staffers, overseen by a 30-member Board of Governors made up of deeply committed community leaders. We take our work seriously but also strive to have fun in the workplace. Our office is located in the Impact Hub in the Pioneer Square neighborhood of Seattle. The Impact Hub hosts gatherings, excursions and other activities (including Milk & Cookie Hour every Monday!) to bring people together to learn from and enjoy each other.
