Forum Reservations

Read on for details on making reservations or go directly to the reservations page. 

Reservations, for members & spouses/partners only, are open year around. The fee is $30 per person for the luncheon Forum. Reservations are accepted on a first-come-first-served basis. Reservations, payment, and cancellations are due by 10 days prior to the event. For example, in the case of a Tuesday luncheon Forum, the deadline would be two Fridays prior.

Unfortunately, same-day reservations are not available—venues have deadlines for receipt of numbers for the ordering food and beverages.

Make your reservation

Members are strongly encouraged to reserve and pay online. By doing so, we are able to more accurately meet deadlines for reservation numbers and you avoid disappointment if your check doesn’t make it to us on time or is lost in the mail.

You will have the option to select and pay for one or more forums.

If you do need to pay offline, contact Diane Young at [email protected].


Refunds upon cancellation can be honored until 10 days prior to the Forum. For example, in the case of a Tuesday luncheon, the deadline for cancellation with a refund would be two Fridays before that.

If you find you cannot attend a Forum for which you have a reservation, please be sure to cancel as soon as possible to make room for others.  Contact Diane Young at [email protected] to cancel.
