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. All Fellows must be sponsored by a Club Member in good standing.

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, virtual networking within the Fellows Class, and complimentary access to all virtual member events. Additional programming includes an Economic Jeopardy competition and a community volunteer opportunity. At the end of the program, the Fellows are recognized by the entire membership and will become a member of the Alumni Network with additional networking opportunities. Upon completion of the program, Fellows will possess many new insights and a broader network to expand their leadership impact. All Club events are virtual at this time we hope to return to hybrid Member events in the fall and staying consistent with past practices, Fellows are given the opportunity to ask the first question(s) to the Guest Speaker at the Club’s Breakfast Series.

Testimonials from former Fellows:

You go into the ECNY Fellows program hoping to expand your professional network. You leave the ECNY Fellows program with new friends, business partners, and an expanded worldview. My advice to future fellows is to lean into this experience with everything you got. The more you put into your experience the more you will get out of it.
-Bryan Jablonski Johnson, 2020 Fellow 

My Fellows experience has been phenomenal - not only is the opportunity to have discussions with thought leaders in such intimate settings unparalleled, but I've been truly impressed by the insights and experiences from my class of Fellows. I'm honored to be a part of this network and to have built many friendships from this experience.
-Gretchen Guo, 2020 Fellow 

The ECNY Fellows program is an invaluable avenue to meet and connect with a diverse group of peers that I would not have been able to cross paths with otherwise. The events provided me with tidbits of knowledge I will use throughout the rest of my career. The Fellows events were an absolute highlight of my 2020, a year that seemingly turned the world upside down.
-Maxwell Kozak, 2020 Fellow
