About

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 the sitting U.S. Supreme Court justices and a variety of thought leaders whose words and actions affect the world in which we live.

 

What began as a 200-member organization that met at Christopher’s Restaurant and the old Helen Wilkes Hotel, both in West Palm Beach, the Forum Club is now capped at 800 members with a waiting list. As a nonprofit organization, the Forum Club’s purpose is to inform and educate the community’s social, business and political interest and to promote a more active participation by all citizens in the democratic process.

Its Mission: Stimulate thought. Promote dialogue.
