The Executives' Club Of Chicago


About The Club


The Executives' Club of Chicago is one of the country's premier executive membership development and networking organizations. For more than 100 years, The Club has served as a platform for senior leaders to build relationships, share ideas, develop new business opportunities and participate in world-class programming.

Membership is composed of senior-level executives; up-and-coming young leaders; professionals and entrepreneurs of large and small, local, national, and multinational corporations; leaders of universities; state and city government officials; and foreign dignitaries.

Membership is by invitation only, with new members nominated by current members. Members are nominated to and accepted by The Executives’ Club of Chicago without regard to gender, race, religion or age.

Member Benefits



As an Executives’ Club member, you receive amazing privileges. This includes access to The Club’s online community—called My ECLink—plus the membership directory at your fingertips. These resources are invaluable for networking; sharing news, activities, and best practices; and for actively engaging in intellectual exchange with those who are knowledgeable and insightful in your industry.

Leadership Circle - Under 40

The Club offers special opportunities for members to network with peers across diverse industries and to learn from senior executives in intimate group settings. Leadership Circle members acquire best business practices while developing meaningful business relationships that will last a lifetime.

Roster Flexibility

Corporate members may update rosters at no additional cost for corporate members. This is most helpful when a roster member is retiring, leaving the company or can’t take advantage of Club membership.

Access to Members-Only Events

Through members-only events, the Executives’ Club presents networking opportunities that help members build business relationships and transform their business to elevate their professional and personal growth.

Club Functions at Reduced Rates

The Club hosts more than 60 functions each year, with attendance ranging from 30 to 2,000 members of the business community. Club members have direct access to these opportunities at a reduced rate. Live events and programs present members with exclusive opportunities to hear from top global leaders about their insights; to network; and to share best practices with top executives across many industries.

Forum Involvement

Club membership includes another extraordinary benefit—participation on up to two forums. Forum involvement allows members to connect with the leaders most influential to their business. The Club’s 12 forums, composed of special-interest and industry-specific professionals, give members a platform to share best practices and discuss issues and innovative ideas.

Exceptional Chicagoans

We’ve scouted the city and identified a group of committed, connected and influential thinkers and doers  - unique individuals who are considered truly exceptional. They embody characteristics that make them stand out from the crowd but mostly by who they are as leaders. Let us know if you want to see someone featured.

Membership Committee

The committee is comprised of members who have both a long standing relationship with The Club as well as new members who are eager to share their experiences with potential members.
