The Economic Club of Washington, D.C., has, since its founding, played a vital role in shifting the perception of Washington, D.C., from a focus on the city as the center of our national government to a growing awareness of the region as a global business destination. For over 25 years, the Club has provided a forum for prominent business and government leaders who have influenced economic and public policy both here and abroad. Members represent over 600 businesses and organizations, located in the Washington, D.C., metropolitan region, that are at the forefront of the private sector economy. They meet regularly to hear globally recognized leaders from the worlds of government, diplomacy, policy-making, business, and education address current issues that are in the news. Featured speakers in recent years have included the President of the United States, a former Prime Minister of Great Britain, the Speaker of the House of Representatives, heads of the Federal Reserve Board, every Secretary of the Treasury since 1986, other Cabinet members and government officials, and leaders of Fortune 100 corporations. The Economic Club consistently is ranked among the Top 10 speaking forums for CEOs. David M. Rubenstein, Co-Chief Executive Officer and Co-founder, The Carlyle Group, is the current President.
