For more than 40 years, the Economic Club of Indiana has been bringing together established and emerging leaders to discuss important social and economic issues that impact our economy. Monthly luncheons invite participants to gain insight from key public figures from a variety of backgrounds while further challenging them to shape our community in their own ways.

Through a partnership with WFYI Public Media — Indiana’s flagship NPR and PBS member station — The Economic Club of Indiana’s presentations are recorded by WFYI Public Radio and broadcast the first Saturday of each month. The programs are also available as an audio podcast at wfyi.org. The Economic Club of Indiana season is supported in part by the Lumina Foundation.
