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.
