The Boston Economic Club (BEC), established in 1932, is a non-partisan organization that fosters substantive, engaging, and well-informed dialogue on topics involving economics, finance and public policy. Its secondary purpose is the development of friendships and the sharing of diverse perspectives. Professional backgrounds of members vary from asset management, finance, banking, government, and academia to law. Club luncheon meetings are held approximately twice a month, usually at the Federal Reserve Bank of Boston. All luncheon content is “off the record” unless the speaker requests otherwise.
BEC speakers are selected from the private, public and academic sector. A sample of more recent speakers includes Janet Yellen, Lawrence Summers, Eric Rosengren, Catherine Mann, Jonathan Gruber, Nicholas Burns, Cathy O’Neil and Seth Klarman. Topics covered differ by month, with a consistent emphasis on relevance. Membership year runs from September to early June.
