As a nonprofit organization, the Forum Club of the Palm Beaches is Florida’s largest non-partisan political and public affairs organization. Since 1976 when President Jimmy Carter served as its inaugural speaker, the Forum Club has hosted a majority of U.S. Supreme Court justices and a variety of thought leaders whose words and actions affect the world in which we live.
The Forum Club caps its membership at 800 individuals with a waiting list. Applications are accepted year-round and must include the names of two current members willing to serve as references, as well as a $25 non-refundable application fee. New members are approved by the Board of Directors twice annually (June and December), and the remaining membership fee is due immediately upon acceptance into the Forum Club.
