Luncheon Programs

The OC Forum offers opportunities to learn and better understand critical issues from the people who are making critical choices. Luncheon program events are offered at least once a month. Each luncheon program includes an often spirited question and answer exchange between the guest speakers and attendees.


Among those who have addressed the Forum are U.S. Presidential candidates, Cabinet Members, Ambassadors, U.S. Senators and Congressmen, State Governors, Constitutional Officers, and Legislators, Corporate CEOs, University Chancellors, as well as leaders in state and county business, academia, the arts, sciences, and community affairs.
