The Union Club of British Columbia has provided a space for the diverse membership of men and women to gather, network and enjoy the events the Club has to offer.
Founded in 1879, The Union Club is a landmark institution in the heart of downtown Victoria. “It’s a National Historic Designation Site of Canada, so not only is it a beautiful place to be, it is vibrant and diverse membership for people of all ages,” explains Tiffany Armstrong, Sales and Marketing Manager for the Club.
With around 2,500 local and non-resident members, 48 per cent of which are female, backgrounds range from entrepreneurs to architects, artists to technicians and many more.
“Our facilities include a Restaurant and Bar, a Billiards Room, the Past Presidents’ Library, a Reading Room, an Executive Fitness Centre with steam room, a Rooftop Garden with a view of the Inner Harbour, 22 guest rooms and suites, three Meeting Rooms, Private Dining Rooms and complimentary parking for members while they are using any of the facilities,” says Tiffany.
A Business Women’s Club founded in 2007 has since grown to over 150 members thanks to the leadership of Charlotte Salomon, QC, a partner at the prestigious McConnan Bion O’Connor & Peterson Law Firm and head of the Business Women’s Group. The Business Women’s Group meets monthly for lunches with guest speakers, and also attends select Club events together.
The Club as a whole also puts on a myriad of events, from informal complimentary member socials to gourmet dinners, wine tastings and black-tie events like the President’s Ball and the New Year’s Eve Gala.
“The Club is a warm and inviting space, with friendly staff and an eclectic membership that is growing every day,” says Tiffany.
“Not only is the Club exceptional for networking but, it’s a home away from home in the heart of the city for many, a mobile office for members to work remotely from the best location in Victoria, and the Club boasts an exquisite food and beverage program like no other,” she adds.
An easy process, which includes filling out an application form is all it takes to become a member.
