A Tradition of Advocacy and Service to the Community

Founded in 1879, the Union League Club of Chicago (ULC) is the only private club in the United States that has an institutional commitment to public policy and community service. Its Public Affairs Committee (PAC) is at the forefront of the Club’s ongoing commitment to community and country. The PAC and its various subcommittees address a wide range of public policy issues, sponsor programs on current affairs with prominent speakers, and serve as the conduit for the Club’s involvement in civic affairs.
