Generations of families have made membership in the Union League Club of Chicago a tradition. Native Chicagoans, newcomers to the city and non-resident members have found the Club provides a venue where they can make new acquaintances, participate in civic and cultural affairs, interact with other professionals and keep abreast of what is going on in the community. 

The Union League Club welcomes individuals of all backgrounds, as each member brings a unique perspective and enriches the Club. Members share a commitment to community and country. Membership is open to any United States citizen 21 years of age or older that is sponsored by two current members.

Individuals who are not U.S. citizens may apply for Foreign National Privileges. A privilege holder enjoys full use of the Club but cannot vote or serve on governing bodies of the Club.
