Goals and Pursuits:

1. Pursuit of a broader civic understanding of how a great city works and interaction with highly-placed city officials who speak off the record.

2. Shared camaraderie of members in organized, edifying, informative meals, lectures, tours and even travels outside of Brooklyn and abroad.


3. Low pressure, low impact net­working that occurs when intelli­gent people of varied backgrounds share discovery in a stimulating environment.

In 1897, the executives of the Brooklyn Daily Eagle formed the Municipal Club of Brooklyn.

The Brooklyn Daily Eagle, which had fought for independence of Brooklyn as a separate city, lost. But the Municipal Club and the founding purpose-pursuit of civic knowledge and accountability ­never died. A dedicated membership, limited in the by-laws to 100 people, made up of civic, business and professional leaders in Brooklyn, have kept the club alive through several generations for well over a century.

Civic Membership Application Details

New civic affiliates will receive regular invitations to participate in a variety of lectures, tours that will always include a meal and fellowship. There will be travel opportunities outside of Brooklyn once or twice a year.
