Become a Member

Your opportunity to learn and connect with peers


Connect globally. Prosper locally. 

Do you want to improve your leadership skills and learn how to solve the challenges your sector faces? Then become a member of the World Trade Center Institute (WTCI) so you can join our network of 3,500+ companies and hundreds of government agencies, nonprofit organizations and academic institutions. It is the largest network of globally minded businesses in the Mid-Atlantic. Although they represent different sectors, these businesses are united in at least one way. Each is led by purpose-driven people who want to share what they have learned and have candid conversations with their peers – all so they and those around them become stronger and smarter leaders. And the world becomes a better place.

By joining, you also will be part of the network of 330 World Trade Center organizations across more than 100 countries, as well as 150 World Bank private sector liaison officers.
