The Club hosts landmark talks, from Franklin D. Roosevelt’s “New Deal” speech, to the inspiring oratory of Martin Luther King, Jr., to Nobel Laureates such as the Dalai Lama, to every modern American president and today’s other world leaders across fields. The Club's INFORUM division presents new, experimental, exciting events with thought leaders.
