Member Appreciation - Beer and Burgers with Michael Shermer

Membership has its benefits!

This is a members only event to show our appreciation to those people who provide the financial support for everything we do – our CFI Members.

You made it possible for us to bring Michael Shermer to Portland for his presentation The Moral Arc of Science.  We invite our members to join Michael and our board for a private, casual evening at Ringlers Pub.

Become a CFI Member today!

    It was awesome to hang out and talk with Drs Shermer and Boghossian! All of the CFI people are fun, too!

    That was so awesome! I got to meet a couple new people and see some people I had already met! Really looking forward to the Bagdad event. I'm so excited to be getting involved with you Cfi people! The intimate dinner with Shermer was so wonderful. I hope we can have more events like this!

    Hmm. I just clicked through and see it seems to be $20 even for members. Is that right?

      About having to pay to hear an author, I'd expect a publisher or bookstore might sponsor a talk about book-related stuff that isn't in his or her latest book, if they're currently trying to sell that book. But I've also noticed authors giving their book talk at a book store and another talk about what they're working on now, or whatever, at a public venue where you have to pay to attend.

      I will bet money his book on this subject will be out soon.

    I'm looking forward to this event! I aint rich but I think $20.00 is affordable. I'm very interested to hear what Shermer has to say!

    As you honor the folks who financially support "everything you do", I can't help wondering when the "tithing" request will come.

      Unless your salary is only $600/yr, I'm not sure I would label our $60 membership fee tithing. But to each their own. Like all non profits we send out a national ask during the fall. Also like most non profits our goal is to stretch every dollar we do receive to promote our cause's goals. We're always thrilled that many show support of those goals by giving more than the base annual membership fee, and those who spend countless hours volunteering outside of their normal jobs helping us advance those goals. we are always in need of more volunteers with great ideas and gumption to take on projects. So even if money is tight, you can still help out without "tithing". If the $60 is the limit of your comfort level that is perfectly fine too. But if you'd like to participate more through taking on a project or financially, just let us know. We do as much as our resources allow. Thanks for your support!

    Ber.n.ie, we are still figuring out the exact format, but I was hoping to incorporate some sort of informal presentation, and Q&A is a very good idea. We'll discuss it with our guest. Thanks for the input!

    I don't know what kind of meeting format you are planning... but it would be nice if this were set-up in a format where he could take group Q&A, rather than simply meet and greet whomever manages to get next to him for a few moments. The group Q&A's are usually interesting and entertaining. Just a suggestion.
