I don't want to register online. How else can I register?
You can email your reservation to
info@churchillclub.org with a credit card number, or fax your reservation to 408-265-0137.

When do your programs take place?
Almost all of our programs are evening events, beginning at 6:00 and ending around 8:30.

Where do your programs take place?
Most of events are held in Palo Alto or Santa Clara. To better meet the needs of our San Francisco members, we are also committed to doing 3-4 programs each year in San Francisco.

What happens at meetings?
Programs generally begin with an hour for networking and mingling. Most often a buffet will be served during the networking time. The program opens with some Club announcements followed by the speaker or panelists. Generally, there will be a time for audience questions prior to the conclusion of the program.

Will I have the opportunity to ask questions?
Most all of our programs include time for questions from attendees. In most cases, attendees are able to ask questions of the speakers directly. If you are unable to ask your question during the program, many speakers are available at the conclusion of the program so attendees may talk with them one-on-one.

Do I get a ticket?
We have ticketless registration. When you pre-register for an event, you give us the name and company that you want on your name badge. When you arrive, you can pick up your pre-printed name badge and proceed into the program.

How can I change my name or company on my name badge?
You can always change the name badge for you or any of your guests up until about 11:00 on the day of the program-that's when we print the name badges. Just go to
My Membership and click on your event registration to change your badge for events for which you have already registered. Edit your profile to permanently change how your name and company is listed for your membership to permanently change your badge for future events.

How are programs chosen?
Staff, Directors, and Club members recommend programs. We consider each proposal based upon the strength of the proposed panelists, the relevance and newsworthiness of the topic, recent and future confirmed programs and the potential appeal to our members. Our Program Advisory Board reviews the strongest proposals.

How can I recommend a topic or speaker?
We welcome program ideas and speaker recommendations from our members. Since we receive hundreds of program proposals that must be reviewed by staff and our Program Advisory Board, we ask that you submit suggestions to
info@churchillclub.org. This will help us to give full consideration to your proposal now as well as consider it in the future if we choose not to schedule at this time. Due to the number of proposals we receive, we cannot always give an immediate answer to each and every one. The review process is often two to three months. So we thank you in advance for your patience in awaiting a response.

Can I reserve a specific seat?
Individual seating is available on a first-come, first-served basis.

Is there any special seating for members?
We value our individual members as well as our corporate members. Therefore, we have created two types of premium seating for members depending upon the event. For members-only programs, two Gold Star tables will be reserved for the twenty individual members who are the first to make their reservations. You will be notified prior to the program if you have registered early enough to qualify for these tables. At regular programs, we will reserve two Members-Only tables in a premium location. The seats at these tables are available on a first-come, first-served basis, once the banquet room doors open.

Can I change the names of people who I am bringing to the event?
You will be able to enter the names of your guests during the registration process, and you can edit these entries up until 11:00am on the day of the event at the
My Membership section.

How do I purchase a Reserved Table?
Reserved tables can be purchased by contacting Marcia Loggins at
mloggins@churchillclub.org or 408-979-5126. Unless otherwise specified, these tables seat 10 people. These seats are ticketless and pre-registered attendees can pick up a pre-printed name badge at registration check in.

Our members are given highest priority for table location based upon membership level (highest to lowest) and payment date. For multiple table purchases, we can accommodate TWO of the tables for premium placement with the rest being dispersed further away. At certain programs, there may be a limit to the number of tables available for purchase.

What is Event Sponsorship?
Event Sponsorship helps to underwrite the promotion and A/V costs for a program. Sponsorships are specific to a program - levels vary, depending upon the level and scope of a program and include multiple benefits to the sponsoring company(ies). In return, sponsors receive the opportunity to showcase their products or services at a table outside the program, a seat at the head table, invitation to the private reception with speakers, Board members, Prime Minister members, and invited guests.

Can I change the names of my guests for my reserved table after I have submitted my order?
Names of your table guests are due 48 hours prior to the program. Please submit names via email or under the
My Membership section on the Churchill Club website.

What if I need a special meal or have another special request?
Most programs offer a buffet with options for vegetarians. If the program is a sit-down dinner, there will be an option when you register for a vegetarian meal. If you have any other special request, please email
info@churchillclub.org.

Are you guaranteeing the speakers you listed will be there?
The speakers as listed on the website have agreed to participate in the event. Rarely, a speaker may need to cancel at the last minute. We always do our best to limit the number of speaker substitutions or cancellations and we promise we will update the website as soon as we know of a speaker change.

What if I need to cancel?
We will issue a full refund for cancellations made at least 3 business days prior to the program. To cancel your reservation, please email
info@churchillclub.org. If you or one of your guests is unable to attend, you may substitute another individual. If you make this substitution prior to 11:00am on the day of the program, you may change the name badge to correctly reflect the substitution by going to the My Membership section. There will be no refunds granted after the three business day cut-off.

How can I become a host volunteer?
Host volunteers help the Club by staffing the registration tables or helping in other ways at meetings. These volunteers attend the program at no charge. For more information, email
info@churchillclub.org.
