In addition to benefits afforded to the Global Appreciation Circle, Knowledge Circle Membership benefits are:

Your membership includes your access to our invitation-only* Economic Policy Discussions. For 2020 and beyond we look to also additionally develop a regional endeavor for S.E. Asia with future discussions also potentially targeted for Bangkok, Hanoi, Jakarta and Manila.

Your membership also allows you to the opportunity to be invited to participate in our various Committees**

Your annual membership also includes you access to our invitation-only* public facing activities for our other initiatives which includes Climate Change Economics and the Indo-Pacific Dialogue.


Please note that as a “think tank” we see one of our many responsibilities for creating comfort zones for dialogue between various stakeholders and as such many of our discussions are held in closed door sessions away from membership privileges.

**Committee participation is an opportunity but not a right of the annual membership. Selection process & Term at the discretion of the Editorial Board. Committee participation are afforded on domain expertise, time commitment demonstrated by the member.

Most importantly your membership will also help contribute towards the administration and planning of our Non-Resident Fellowship and Public Policy Scholarship initiatives and from time to time as the opportunity presents itself you will have the opportunity to meet and engage with our Non-Resident Fellows, our Public Policy Scholarship Advisory Board and with members of our Global Advisory Board.


Please note we do not sell access or an opportunity to engage. We merely appreciate your support and if and when possible, we  are happy to enable such opportunities for you to meet and engage our guests. We do not operate as a lobby and furthermore, we do not make any representations of any advocacy or cause other than the Editorial subjects that we embark on as a think tank.
