The 2017-18 season of the Madison Civics Club is underway!  Please check under the Events tab for a preview of our speaker lineup for this season.  We hope you will join us for a fun and informative year!

Please note that we will be moving our time up by one hour this season, in response to a request that many of you made.  The registration tables will be staffed starting at 8:30 am, doors to the room will open at 9:00 am, announcements, Youth Grants awards, and PA speakers will be at 10:00 am, and the main speaker will start at 11:00 am.  The morning will wrap up by noon. We will be serving brunch foods (starting about 10:30) rather than our tradition luncheon meals.

In addition to bringing you renowned speakers on several interesting and timely topics, the Madison Civics Club is honored to provide Youth Grants to recognize individuals and student organizations engaged in activities that enrich the civic life of our community. 

Please consider joining or re-joining us for an exciting year. We look forward to welcoming you to the 106th season of this wonderful organization!
