No, you do not need to be a member to attend most Town Hall Los Angeles events. We do occasionally offer events to members only, and members receive priority registration to our most high-demand events. Those who are on our email distribution list will be informed of all events. You can become a member and receive all the benefits of membership at any time.
We love receiving speaker suggestions from our members and supporters; this is YOUR Town Hall and your input is integral to our programming decisions. Please feel free to let us know if there is a particular topic that you feel would be appropriate for a Town Hall discussion. Or, if you would like to propose a specific speaker for Town Hall, please send us the speaker’s bio, proposed speech title, and a brief abstract on what they would like to discuss. All suggestions should go to our Vice President of Programs and Public Affairs, Marian Shima, at mshima@townhall-la.org or 213.312.9303.
We strongly recommend that you buy tickets in advance to guarantee a seat. Some events sell out and some events – for security reasons – do not accept walk-ins. You may cancel, without penalty, up to three full business days before the event.
Go to Events and click-on the ones that interest you. You will then be transferred to an individual event page where you’ll find details on the event, venue, pricing and a prompt to “Register Now”. You can also call us at 213.628.8141; Monday – Friday, 9:00 am – 5:00 pm.
Tickets are available at the registration table on the day of the event and filed under each registrant’s last name.
Seating is assigned by table, with members receiving priority seating.
Meals cannot be guaranteed after 20 minutes from the start of service. However, paid attendees may still come and enjoy the speaker and participate in the question and answer session.
