Humanities MLF program

Member-Led Forums

Member-led Forums (MLFs) are a volunteer-driven division of Commonwealth Club programming. These diverse and timely programs cover a wide range of topics on an ongoing basis throughout the year. They range from large events to intimate discussions with speakers, from art shows and restaurant visits to book discussion groups. MLFs are volunteer-run, organized by Club members who coordinate programs within specific areas of interest.

Humanities

The Humanities Member-Led Forum focuses on ideas and experiences in history, biography, science, philosophy and literature that shed light on issues of current interest to the membership and the community.
