Club Membership

The Club is a distinguished New York institution that is recognized as the foremost nonpartisan speaking forum in the United States. Over the last century the Club has hosted more than 1,000 eminent leaders. Our breakfasts, lunches and occasional dinners are informative and enriching exchanges with world class and highly influential thought leaders from various sectors of the economy.

The Club promotes no specific agenda but instead provides a structured forum in which leaders from here and abroad can address timely issues of importance before our members and their invited guests. The Club’s members are among the top business leaders in the nation, interested in vigorous and on-going debate and discussion about issues that keep our nation and hopefully the larger global economy advancing.

Members are chosen from among those persons who have demonstrated a particular interest in the purposes of the Club. Leadership quality, diversity and balance are the key objectives sought by the Club in the composition of its membership. Members have distinguished themselves in the areas of finance, technology, law, government, academe, media, healthcare, and other economic sectors.
