Founded in 1907 by J.W. Beatson, Secretary of the National Economic League in Boston, and four business leaders from New York City, the Club's founders sought to follow the example of the Economic Clubs of Boston, Providence, Worcester, Portland, Springfield, and New Haven with the aim of bringing business people and professionals together for serious discussions of economic, social and other public issues in a non-partisan forum.
For over a century, the Club has been a prominent forum in which notable figures from a variety of fields have opined on issues of national and international importance.
The Club has been host to over 1,000 eminent leaders at its speaker's dais. The Club’s audiences have heard from future, current, and past presidents of the United States.
Other Guests of Honor have included central bankers, justices of the U.S. Supreme Court, secretaries general of the United Nations, governors and heads of international business enterprises, as well as many key cabinet members, military leaders, ambassadors, and scientific innovators.
The Club also has a long tradition of selecting outstanding leaders to guide the organization itself. Its membership represents a cross-section of leaders from the nation's business, financial, and public policy world: lawyers, bankers, industrialists, political figures, the news media, diplomats - persons bringing to it a wide variety of experience, insight and attainment.
