The Economic Club of New York’s membership is curated from the senior executives and leaders in New York City. Members are committed to the ideals of respectful and thoughtful conversation and have demonstrated leadership in their field of work. The Club offers two categories of membership - full membership and associate membership.

The Club's annual membership dues are $1,000. A one-time initiation fee of $1,000 is also required of new members upon their acceptance by the Membership Committee.
Associate Membership Criteria
The Economic Club of New York offers a new five (5) year term membership for individuals 45 years of age or under that are in a mid-level or above leadership position with approximately seven (7) years professional experience, demonstrating upward mobility and a successful track record.
