The Economic Club of New York (ECNY) Fellows Program is a customized year-long program that introduces rising executives with great promise to thoughtful discussions and debates on the complex issues of the day, ranging from pressing economic, social and political issues, public policy questions and corporate reporting issues to economic regulation to tech disruption, and much more. In addition to the annual Fellows program for participants living and/or working in the NYC Metro area (NY/NJ/CT), The Economic Club of New York now offers a virtual National Fellows Program, for the first time.

The exclusive Fellows-only programming includes intimate events with prominent Executives who are members of the Club who share their personal business insights in an open-discussion format, special networking for both the NYC and National Fellows Classes, the annual Economic Jeopardy competition, and the new Innovation and Social Impact Challenge. Additionally, all Fellows receive complimentary access to all virtual member events. NYC Fellows can network and enjoy attendance at occasional Club signature events where a special table is reserved for them, and they are given the opportunity to ask the first question(s) to the Guest Speaker at the Club’s Events. Upon completion of the program, Fellows will possess many new insights and a broader network of connections to expand their career growth and leadership impact and are offered the opportunity to apply for Membership in the Club at the appropriate level or for our Non-Resident Membership. All Fellows will become members of the Fellows Alumni Network with additional networking opportunities. NYC Fellows are also recognized by the entire membership at the end of the year dinner.

Testimonials from former Fellows:

It’s been great to hear the perspectives of ECNY speakers, whether it be about finance, pharmaceuticals, economics, political research, or board membership.  It’s a wonderful program and I feel honored to have taken part.

~ Charlene Butterfield, 2021 Fellow

What has been most surprising is the quality of speakers we have regularly and access we have to reach out to the speakers after events.  The development I have been able to achieve this year, due to the programming of the Economic Club of New York has been invaluable.

~ Justin Harmon, 2021 Fellow

Being part of the 2021 ECNY Fellow class was like being a part of a continuous masterclass around in-depth analysis and debate of foreign policy, geopolitics, business, and global affairs taught by the leading experts in each field. I have gained tremendous knowledge and walk away with enough intellectual capital and network access to one day join the ranks of one of these successful leaders who lead with their head and their heart.

~ Martial Combari, 2021 Fellow
