Our members make it possible to bring dynamic speakers to Queens and the Charlotte community and broaden their impact through student-centered learning opportunities.

Membership is open to anyone interested and is offered on a yearly/seasonal basis. Membership is offered at two levels: Annual Membership and President’s Circle Membership.

Membership Benefits

Annual Members

Annual Members enjoy the following benefits:

  • Two lecture events: Fall and Spring
  • Two tickets with seating in the reserved member section
  • Access to private receptions before and after lectures, where members enjoy a variety of food, drinks, and plenty of time to dialogue on the topic of the evening
  • Signed copy of the speaker’s book will be mailed a month before the lecture, allowing members the opportunity to engage with the topic even before the lecture begins

Member Salon: Winter

While the lectures cover national and international topics, the Salon is an intimate gathering of members where they engage with community thought leaders on a hyper-local topic. Some prior Salon topics are: “Jewels in the Queen City’s Crown – Outdoor Amenities, Environmental Resources, and Good Stewardship that Make Charlotte a Leading City,” “Meeting Transportation and Infrastructure Needs: How Prosperity and Sustainability Intersect,” “Healthcare in the USA: What Works, What’s Broken, and What Can We Do to Make It Better,” and “Charlotte as a Global City for Food Culture (including an optional Food Tour with Charlotte Historian, Tom Hanchett).”

Member Cocktail: Late Spring

For members and prospective members only, this annual membership party offers cocktails and conversation, and the upcoming season speakers are announced to the group.
