The Membership Process

Membership for The College Club of Cincinnati shall be open to women holding a minimum of a baccalaureate degree earned in institutions accredited by a regional accrediting agency.  An active member shall be one who lives within forty miles of Government Square in the city of Cincinnati.

Members nominate interested applicants to The College Club at any time during the year. It is recommended that one attends several meetings, prior to completing the application. This helps the candidate get a feel for the Club and meet as many members as possible.   

Requirements include the following: 

  • A Sponsor is someone you know fairly well who has invited you to join the College Club. She nominates you and helps guide you through the application process. In addition, two members, add their endorsements to the application; 
  • The candidate completes the application form provided by her Sponsor, with an attached copy of her college diploma; 
  • Shortly after the application is received by the Membership Committee, the candidate meets the Board at a board meeting, and is then voted on afterwards.    

Once approved: 

The “new member” is formally introduced at an upcoming membership meeting.  

Shortly thereafter, an invoice is sent for the initiation fee of $75 and membership dues $70 that may be pro-rated depending on when one joins. New College Club members also fill out a form indicating how they might wish to serve. Getting involved on committees is a great way to get to meet others and learn how the Club works. 

If interested in applying for membership, please contact Nancy Lu Walters, Membership Chair, at NLWalters1@gmail.com or 513-252-6135, for further information.
