Atlantic Council


The Atlantic Council’s individual membership program provides an opportunity for individuals committed to the Atlantic community, and its leadership in tackling global challenges, to be more directly involved with the Council’s activities and network. By joining the Atlantic Council, members help support our work and new initiatives, while joining a broad community of influence dedicated to promoting US and European leadership around the world. 

Currently, the individual membership program includes nearly 500 individuals with diverse perspectives, bound by a common interest in transatlantic cooperation, including more than forty sitting ambassadors and more than thirty chief executive officers, as well as numerous foreign and US government officials, senior military leadership, academics, journalists, and leaders in the business, legal, financial, and nonprofit sectors.
