Welcome to the
Channel City Club

1946-2016 Celebrating 70 Years!

The Channel City Club was founded in 1946 in Santa Barbara, California, to provide the community with a local venue for outstanding speakers on state, national, and international issues. Our distinguished speakers are professionals in their chosen fields and are not paid by the Channel City Club.

We are a non-profit, non-partisan organization and endeavor to have all sides of controversial topics presented. Our Q&A period after each talk is for the purpose of information rather than debate and we take no official stance on any subject.

There are approximately 20 - 25 luncheons a year. You may attend as many programs as you like or that your schedule permits. We have a luncheon meeting format and we attempt to accommodate the speakers' schedules on any weekday.

Most of our luncheons are held at The Fess Parker, a DoubleTree by Hilton Resort. We also offer many special events for our members who chose to sign up for our additional opportunities.
