Director of Membership University Club of Chicago, Chicago, Illinois

The University Club is a private members’ club that is committed to fostering an appreciation of literature and the arts. It is member-owned, Board-driven, and proud to provide a space where members can explore many intellectual and cultural pursuits. College or university graduation remains the basic requirement for membership, and nearly every business and profession is represented within a diverse network of members.

The Opportunity

The University Club of Chicago is one of the city’s oldest and most enduring institutions. The Club offers its members a vibrant environment that celebrates education, excellence, and community. For over a century the Club has offered a home away from home for its thousands of members. While the pandemic has certainly presented challenges and changes within the Club, the leadership is taking the opportunity to re-energize, reinvigorate, and rethink every aspect of the member experience. One of these initiatives is to create a new team, the Culture and Community Division.

The next Director of Membership is responsible for leading the Club’s membership recruitment and retainment efforts through the development and execution of an effective sales, marketing, and stewardship strategy. This position is an essential member of the management team and is dedicated to fostering strong ties between the Club and its membership, as well as advancing the Club’s position within the local community.
