A legacy of bringing some of the world’s most sought-after speakers to our region since 1943
Our mission: To conduct meetings and provide speakers for the purpose of aiding in the creation and expression of enlightened public opinion on the important economic and social questions of the day … but without endorsement of a particular cause.
New members welcome
You won’t find this caliber of thought-provoking, world-renowned speakers at any other venue in our region. Just as importantly, it’s your opportunity to network and exchange ideas with some of the most influential men and women from our communities. As a new member, you’ll enjoy:
- Four or more presentations in our annual series that begins in the fall and ends in the spring.
- Two membership choices: Upton Hall or Mainstage. Read more about each below.
- Guaranteed seating at each presentation at the lowest ticket prices.
- Convenient location: Both venues are at The Mendel Center, Lake Michigan College, 2755 E. Napier Ave., Benton Harbor, MI (I-94, Exit 30).
