The University Club is a wonderful resource for the people of Albany and the Capital Region:
- a handsome historic building which is a significant anchor on one of our busiest thoroughfares;
- a place where one can have lunch with a colleague, or host a meeting for a small or large group in an elegant, professional atmosphere; and
- an extension of our homes – whether we want to get together with friends for drinks, host an intimate dinner or a fun party, or put up out-of-town guests for the evening.
We’re certain that you’ll love our Club as we do. In fact, we’re so sure, we want to offer you a free trial membership through the end of 2010. No charge, no strings, no gimmicks!
This offer is available to anyone who is not currently a member of the University Club, and we ask that you provide your credit card number for billing of any fees incurred for meals, drinks, or room rentals.
To become a member, simply fill out and drop off or mail in a copy of the application form. During this free trial period, we are waiving the requirement that candidates have two sponsors and meet a representative of the Membership Committee prior to consideration by the Board of Directors – we are also waiving the entrance fee. The sooner you sign up, the sooner you can begin enjoying benefits of membership!
All over the country, private clubs are closing because of dwindling attendance. The average age of club members is climbing, and younger people are not joining as their parents once did. Today, the University Club needs careful stewardship to endure, and to maintain its dignity, history and uniqueness.
The club is membership-owned and is governed by four elected officers and a board of directors. Membership is open to men and women who have graduated from, or attended, a recognized university or college. A limited number of memberships are available for those who have not attended college.
We hope you’ll take advantage of this limited time offer, and join the University Club of Albany!
PS: Did you know that the University Club has reciprocal agreements with some 125 other clubs around the country, including the Penn Club in New York City and the University Club of Boston? You can visit the University Club online at http://www.universityclubalbany.com/ for more information.
