Boston’s Premier Social Club for Single Professionals 45+

We have many great events every month, including an Event Planning Meeting where attendees get a free dinner and the chance to propose any event for club approval.  Most weeks we have an astounding 3 or more events!  Any member who is even minimally active gets their annual membership fee’s worth many times over.  Just ask our members at one of our After Work parties or dances.  Join our Boston Professionals Social Group (BPSG) meetup (that’s free) and you’ll see them listed and be able to sign up for them.  That will also let us know that we should consider you for membership in the Sitzundjibers club. 

Our regular events (many are only open to Sitzundjiber members, not BPSG) include:

  • 2 After Work cocktail parties  per month,
  • Annual black tie Holiday Party, 
  • Annual Meeting Dinner,
  • 3 – 5 big dances with live bands per year,
  • the aforementioned monthly Event Planning Meetings,
  • huge Super Bowl party (80 people) at a member’s home,
  • Halloween party at member’s home,
  • “Sitzball” – our annual softball game-barbeque,
  • weekend ski trip(s),
  • concerts and plays with optional dinner,
  • hikes, kayak outings, beach parties, and who knows what else our members will come up with!

Sitzundjibers is a private singles social club made up of professional men and women aged 45+. We are doctors, lawyers, teachers, CEOs, scientists, engineers, technologists, artists, writers, producers, designers and business people. Our members live in Boston and the surrounding suburbs including the north and south shores. We even have a few members from NH,  RI and FL.

Sitzundjibers Social Club was formed in 1955 by a group of young, single, well-educated, upwardly mobile professionals. They had found themselves missing as active a social life as they would have liked to have. They knew that by organizing themselves into a formal club with lots of creative events planning, they could establish a lively social set.

The club name is a bit tongue-in-cheek. It’s made-up from German: Sitz from skiing — a sitzmark is a rut left in the snow from an ungraceful fall; Jibers from sailing — a jibe is when a sailing boat turns its stern through the wind. In other words: Skiers and Sailors. 🙂

Our club does not have a staff and we run on the energy of our members’ contribution of their time to host events. We are most interested in recruiting people who will be active volunteers in the planning and running of events. Sitzundjibers values the specific skills and talents that individuals have and we strive to maintain a gender balance when considering candidates for membership in the club.

If you are interested in joining us, we encourage you to attend our “After Works”. These are generally held twice a month at area hotels or restaurants. There is no cost to attend. These are posted on our associated “Meet-up” site: Boston’s Professional Social Group. Non-members can sign up for events by registering on that site.
