The Commonwealth Club of California is the nation’s oldest and largest public affairs forum. We bring over 400 annual events on topics ranging across politics, culture, society and the economy to 20,000 members.

The Club has offices in San Francisco and San Jose, with regular events in both cities, as well as programs in Lafayette in the East Bay.

For members outside the Bay Area, the Club’s weekly radio broadcast — the oldest in the U.S., dating back to 1924 — is carried across the nation on public and commercial radio stations. Our website archive features audio and video of our recent programs, as well as selected speeches from our long and distinguished history.
