Peak Oil and Ponzi Finance:

Join us on Friday, January 24th at noon, when we will hear from Mr. Charlie Stephens.  He is a long-time public policy specialist, with a wide range of experiences.  He spent 17 years at the Oregon Department of Energy as a lead policy analyst.  His broad areas of expertise include energy policy, energy efficiency, renewable energy, transportation systems and land use, economic and community development, macroeconomics, sustainable agriculture, international trade and foreign policy, and climate change. He is a retired Navy Commander, having served 22 years in the Navy and Coast Guard.
Mr. Stephens will talk about money and oil connections throughout history, including the role of energy and finance in our current economic problems. He will give his assessment of current energy options as we look to the immediate future, including nuclear, shale, tar sands and fracking.
He is a graduate of Dartmouth College and the Thayer School of Engineering in Hanover, New Hampshire.  While at Dartmouth, he played a key role in modeling one of the five sectors within the Meadows/Forrester team that produced the original Limits to Growth study.  Currently, he is one of the leading national experts on energy efficiency of appliances and related technologies.
When he’s not working, Charlie enjoys spending time in the cathedrals of the old growth forests of the Pacific Northwest, and riding and working with his horses.
Please join us Friday, January 24, 2014, as we welcome Charlie Stephens at the Willamette Heritage Center at the Mill.   For lunch reservations email before noon Wednesday, January 22, 2014Parking is free.  Doors open at 11:30 AM.  For more information on this program please go to

2013 Fall Membership Drive:
A Smashing Success

Thank you, Members, for making our Membership Drive a smashing success. We welcomed 28 new members from September 1 through the end of the year. Those members are: Steve Aanonson, Anne Bauer, Jonathan Bauer, Keith Bauer, Madge Bauer, Michael Conroyd, Martha Curry, William Dalton, Tom Dutoit, Dorothy Eberhardt, Dan Ebert, Brian Fordham, Brian Hart, Rose Kachadoorian, Marcia Kelley, Cynthia Kimball, Kim Lemman, Kathy Lincoln, Nicholoas Nikas, Sean Nikas, Selma Pierce, Michael Powers, Sam Wegner, Kathleen West, Jill Woods, Jo Ann Yockey, Jon Yoder, Mary Lou Zeek.
Members who introduced someone to the Club, who then joined during the drive, were entered into a prize drawing for a Weekend at the Beach. CONGRATULATIONS to Hans West, who introduced Kathleen West. Because this introduction was so easy, he promised to get another membership. We'll hold him to it. (The original name drawn on December 13 was not eligible for the drawing. A replacement drawing was held on January 10, prior to the program.)
Building membership is a full-time, 365 day-a-year mission. The strength and variety of our programs makes it easy to invite a community member to experience the club. Often, one experience will lead to a member joining the Club. Please be sure to mention your membership in Salem City Club when you are out with friends and family. Encourage them to see Salem City Club at work and we can all get the benefit of increased membership: energy, diversity, and financial strength.
