About

Now in its 49th year, the Piedmont Economics Club is South Carolina’s oldest civic organization dedicated to the promotion and discussion of economic ideas and thought.

Holding dinner meetings at the Poinsett Club in Greenville, SC, the Club offers its members and their guests the opportunity to hear leading economists, financial analysts, journalists, and government policy makers.

The Club meets six to seven times a year, and always begins its meetings with a 6:00 pm reception and time of fellowship. This is followed by dinner and the speaker’s presentation. A time for questions and reflection rounds out the club meeting.

In addition to promoting economic thought and discussion among its members and their guests, the Club seeks to enrich the teaching of economics at area universities. Faculty members at Anderson University, Clemson University, Furman University, Presbyterian College, and Wofford College enjoy a standing invitation to attend meetings as guests of the Club. The Club also hosts university and college students as guests.

Membership and attendance is open to all who are interested in the discussion of economic ideas, trends, and related topics, and who enjoy interacting with other like-minded individuals, students and faculty.  The membership fee for 2018-2019 is $500.  One may attend an individual meeting for $90.00. Members may bring guests for a fee of $65.00.
