THE RICHMOND FIRST CLUB

Connected, Informed & Involved

Founded in 1919, when Richmond was in need of leadership during its rapid expansion, the Richmond First Club (RFC) began a long tradition of informing members and the public about important community concerns.

RFC provides an opportunity to connect with political, community and business leaders on a broad spectrum of current issues in the Richmond regional area.

WHEN ARE MEETINGS?

Monthly luncheon meetings are held at noon on the second Wednesday of each month at Willow Oaks Country Club. Excellent speakers have long been the centerpiece of RFC's work. Known as a knowledgeable, informed group, our membership attracts respected, well-known leaders.

Speakers include educators, candidates for office, government officials, political analysts, and specialists in transportation, tourism, regional cooperation, health care, housing, and other matters of public interest.

WHO BELONGS?

Membership is open to all who want to stay well informed about community and governmental issues.

If you're looking for an opportunity to learn and to contribute to our region, RFC is the right choice.

IS RFC PARTISAN?

No, RFC strives to be nonpartisan in the selection of speakers and topics for meetings. Balance has always been a hallmark of the club and its leadership.
