Membership Does Have Privileges, in the DC Wharton Club

Exceptional Programs Give You Unmatched Access,
if You Join Hundreds of Other Members

Through our programs and extensive network of strong contacts, you and other members have had an opportunity, unequalled by any similar club in our region, to network with other members and guests and learn from luminaries and thought leaders in:

  • Business, such as Jack Welch, former CEO of General Electric; Meg Whitman, CEO of eBay; Bill Gates of Microsoft; and John Hofmeister, President of Shell
  • Government, such as Commerce Secretary Gary Locke; Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano, Barney Frank (D-MA); and Arnold Schwarzenegger
  • Academia, including Wharton Profs Sigal Barsade, Richard Shell, Jerry Wind and, most recently, Josh Eliashberg
  • Nonprofits, including Gail McGovern, CEO of the American Red Cross
  • Green and sustainable business, including the dozens of top speakers at our two Green Business Summits and 17 Green Business Roundtables
  • Culture and the performing arts, such as Morgan Freeman, Dolly Parton, Dennis Quaid and Billy Joel, all of whom are successful entrepreneurs in their own rights, plus the Choral Arts Society (Russian Embassy program in March 2010), and the Viennese Holiday Ball each December
  • Other arenas that are the focus of roundtables, such as Health Care, Nonprofits, Entrepreneurship, and Homeland Security/National Defense
  • Our Leads Council, headed by Heinan Landa and Jeanne Rossomme, now in its sixth year
  • International affairs, through more than 70 embassies where we have been privileged to visit for briefings and receptions over the years. We have covered the globe, literally from A (Argentina, Austria and Australia) to Z (Zambia)
  • And much more to help you gain value as a member
