The theme for the Madison Civics Club 2015-16 season is: Just imagineā€¦the possibilities. We are thrilled to welcome civic, national and international speakers to discuss creatively building community. 

As citizens in the twenty-first century, we need to embrace ways of including the imaginative arts, diverse ideas and various cultures into our civic lives. All of our distinguished keynote and public affairs speakers will suggest the possibilities. 

At each meeting, members of Madison Civics Club have the opportunity to question the keynote speakers. Throughout the luncheon you are encouraged to engage in discussions with your table companions. 

Madison Civics Club is honored to continue the fine tradition of providing financial Youth Grant Awards to recognize individual and student organizations that are engaged in activities that enrich our community. 

Finally, the Madison Civics Club offers the opportunity to enhance your life through our educational and entertaining luncheon series. Please consider joining or re-joining us for an exciting year. I look forward to welcoming you to the 104th season of remarkable possibilities!
