Events & Conversations


Unlike some business groups, our membership structure is designed to assure a diversity of industries, ages and backgrounds. When guests address The Economic Club of Chicago they speak to a broad cross-section of American executives. Global thought leaders from the worlds of business, politics and science know their words are heard by opinion leaders with a reach well beyond Chicago.
