We Hear From The Best Minds In Business

The Economic Club of Kansas City was founded in 2005 as a nonprofit organization at the inspiration of Thomas M. Hoenig, President and CEO of the Federal Reserve Bank of Kansas City.

The Club is nonpolitical, nonpartisan, and nonprofit and takes no side on any issue considered in its forum.
