Membership



Join the Club!


The Detroit Economic Club is one of the premier speaking forums in the nation for business leaders and government officials. A DEC membership not only offers the opportunity to hear from some of the greatest thought leaders of our time, but also provides access to the best environment for networking and idea-sharing in Southeast Michigan.

When you become a DEC member, you join a dynamic body of leaders in business, labor, education and government who represent all of the major industries in Michigan and individually contribute to the economic growth and success of our region, the nation and the world. We would be proud to welcome you to our ranks!

  "The Detroit Economic Club has become a tremendous
  benefit to me, both personally and professionally. Not only
  have I forged important business relationships and made
  new friends, but have heard thought provoking commentary
  and analysis from CEO's, heads of state and philanthropic
  leaders across the globe. In my opinion, no other forum in
  the area can provide these benefits at that cost."
 
- J.R. Hesano, Managing Director, J.P. Morgan Private Bank and Detroit Economic Club member
