Background

Over its history, the Bretton Woods Committee has played an essential role advocating for the International Financial Institutions (IFIs), particularly as it relates to U.S. resourcing and funding replenishments. The Committee has used its convening power and diverse expertise to serve as an important non-partisan resource for policymakers on Capitol Hill and in the Administration since its founding in 1983. 

The Bretton Woods Committee’s Legislative Working Group (LWG) leads BWC’s engagement with the U.S. Congress and the Administration. The Working Group educates Congressional Committees, Members of Congress, and their staffs about the importance of the IFIs and the critical leadership role of the United States at these institutions.
