Each year, the Bretton Woods Committee organizes conferences, seminars, and educational activities, many of which are designed to reach a broad public audience while others offer members the opportunity to network and exchange views on key issues in the fields of international finance, trade, and development.
Flagship Events – the Annual Meeting and International Council – are the Bretton Woods Committee’s signature annual large-scale gatherings of global leaders aimed to discuss key issues in international finance, global economic development, and trade as well as explore how to improve the strength and effectiveness of the international financial institutions. Flagship Events take place alongside the International Monetary Fund/World Bank Group Annual and Spring Meetings in Washington, D.C., and every third-year in another country.
The Bretton Woods Committee convenes Working Groups populated by members of the BWC Board of Directors and Advisory Council, as well as Committee members with relevant expertise and experience. Working Groups lead BWC activities on the organization’s core issue areas, including legislation and U.S. policy, finance, trade, and development. Working Groups organize events, draft publications, and provide opportunities for BWC member engagement.
Special Projects are temporary initiatives designed to respond to critical emerging issues. Like Working Groups, Special Projects organize events, draft publications, and provide opportunities for BWC member engagement.
