									THE SUTTER CLUB, SACRAMENTO, CA                                                    GENERAL MANAGER
The Sutter Club, founded in 1889, is the second oldest private club in the state of California. Its colorful
history began when Sacramento was still little more than a river-dependent town best known as the chief
outfitting headquarters for waves of gold-crazed vagabonds and sharpies. Sacramento matured and
prospered in part because of its role as the Capital of California. The Sutter Club, located at Fourth and J
Streets became a second home to visiting lawmakers and various legislative hangers-on. Every Governor
of California, save one, has been a member of the Sutter Club. The Club moved to its present location in
1930 and has been the site of an endless variety of social gatherings. The building was designed by local
architect Charles Dean and is a striking example of early California mission style architecture. It is
located in downtown Sacramento, across the street from the State Capitol. Sacramento is a growing,
dynamic community with a diversified economy and a broad array of cultural and recreational amenities.
It is exhibiting strong growth throughout the region including an exciting renaissance of its urban core. It
also boasts a unique location in Northern California - lying in the Central Valley just about midway
between San Francisco and Lake Tahoe and also within easy reach of the wine country - an hour away
from the Napa Valley, and an hour’s drive from the wine country of the Sierra foothills, which is fast
becoming recognized for its numerous small wineries and excellent wines. Thirty minutes to the south of
Sacramento is Lodi, the Zinfandel capitol of the world. The Sutter Club is not just a place to enjoy lunch.
Rather, the Club has had, and continues to have a very active and diverse calendar of social events.
Among the most enduring are the Crab Feed, Past Presidents and Life Member Dinner, the Huntsman
Dinner, Mothers Day and Easter Brunches, and the Father-Daughter dinner dance. In addition, there are
special theme dinners, wine dinners speakers and entertainment scheduled regularly every year. The last
Sunday of each month is reserved for Family Night Dinners which includes Bingo, Performers and an
occasional traveling petting zoo. The Sutter Club Christmas Ball continues to be the highlight of the
Sacramento social scene.
The General Manager will implement the policies established by the Board of Directors and Bylaws of
The Sutter Club. The ideal candidate will have 7 to 10 years of progressive General Manager experience
