Founded in 1879, the Union League Club of Chicago (ULCC) 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.

The PAC advances its work in many ways, including coalition building, supporting public information campaigns, sponsoring debates and forums, and testifying before legislative bodies on behalf of positions approved by the Board. In recognition of the Club’s record of public policy leadership and advocacy, in 2007 the Illinois League of Women Voters presented to the PAC and the ULCC its prestigious Civic Contribution Award – the first time this statewide award was ever given to an organization instead of an individual recipient.
