Established in 1986 as a non-profit, non-partisan corporation, the Economic Club strengthens and promotes global awareness of the pivotal role that Washington plays in national and world economies.
Our goals are twofold: to create a meaningful forum where eminent global leaders can share their insights about major issues; and to provide a robust peer community for the area's top executives.
Today the Economic Club is a premier hub for heads of companies based throughout the United States and globally. Our speakers represent foreign governments, international non-government organizations, and the largest companies operating throughout the world. These luminaries have included a U.S. President, a former United Kingdom Prime Minister, United States Cabinet officials from five presidential administrations, Speakers of the House of Representatives and other members of Congress, leaders of Fortune Global 500 companies as well as world-renowned economists, business executives and philanthropists.
