Organized in 1986 as a non-profit, non-partisan corporation, the Economic Club was established in recognition of the unique and critical role that Washington plays in the national and world economies and because of the Washington metropolitan area's increasing economic diversity and importance as a center of business activity. One goal of the founders was to create a forum from which eminent global leaders from all different sectors of life could share their insights about major issues. Secondly, the founders wanted to build an organization that would generate and promote a greater sense of community among the area's top executives, regional and national government officials, and members of the diplomatic community. Since that time, the Economic Club of Washington has evolved into a vibrant mechanism for connecting prominent business leaders in the Washington, D.C., area. It also has become an influential forum for the exploration of national and global public policy issues, ably fulfilling the dual mission for which it was formed. Today, the Economic Club is the premier forum for leaders. The list of speakers who have addressed the Club includes a President of the United States, a former Prime Minister of the United Kingdom, 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 hosts approximatelly 10 signature events a year, generally organized around a breakfast, lunch or dinner event. An average of 350 members and guests attend each meeting with attendance for some events surpassing 600. Economic Club members are Washington area company CEOs and CFOs, entrepreneurs, investment professionals, government affairs professionals, lawyers, accountants, and local government officials. Currently, the Club has more than 600 members.

Founded in 2007 by former Senate Majority Leaders Howard Baker, Tom Daschle, Bob Dole and George Mitchell, the Bipartisan Policy Center (BPC) is a non-profit organization that drives principled solutions through rigorous analysis, reasoned negotiation and respectful dialogue. With projects in multiple issue areas, BPC combines politically-balanced policymaking with strong, proactive advocacy and outreach. As the only Washington, DC-based think tank that actively promotes bipartisanship, BPC works to address the key challenges facing the nation. Our policy solutions are the product of informed deliberations by former elected and appointed officials, business and labor leaders, and academics and advocates who represent both ends of the political spectrum. We are currently focused on health, energy, national and homeland security, transportation, the economy, housing, immigration, and governance. BPC is committed to seeing our policy solutions enacted by lawmakers. Through the Bipartisan Policy Center Advocacy Network (BPCAN), our (c)(4) affiliate, we engage in advocacy and strategic outreach and education to bolster the legislative center and support efforts that bring Republicans and Democrats together on the difficult issues facing the country. While a healthy, civil debate among those with differing viewpoints is an essential component of our democracy, the current partisan tone in government is impeding progress. Through the Democracy Project and events like Bridge-Builder Breakfasts, political summits and timely policy discussions, BPC is fostering an ongoing conversation about how to overcome political divides and help make our government work better.
