How it works

Lunch and ample networking time is provided prior to the 25-minute presentation. Local, regional, and national speakers engage us in diverse topics related to business, the regional economy and environmental stewardship. Attendee announcements close out each meeting, which we limit to 1 hour.

Block Reservations: Reserve your seat for all remaining lunches of the season.  No RSVP necessary for block reservation holders and they are  fully transferable – so send a colleague or friend if you are unable to attend. Purchase your block reservation or contact info@sanjuancitizens.org to reserve.

Monthly Reservations: Purchase or RSVP by the Thursday prior to each luncheon either through the events page on this website or emailing info@sanjuancitizens.org. Payment of $17 for lunch is implied, no-shows or cancellations with less than 48 hours notice may be invoiced. The price for walk-ins or late RSVPs is $22. Reservations will be released at 12:10.

Walk-Ins: A limited number of walk-ins are available without RSVPs for $22.
