Who We Are
WAMM is a public organization formed for the education and exchange of investment management ideas, concepts, and techniques in an atmosphere free from sales pressure.

WAMM’s mission is to educate the public and its members with timely and informative market opinions via our monthly speaker presentations and to continue our tradition of providing an informal forum for the exchange of views. A Few of Our Past Guest Speakers include Alan Greenspan, Dr. Alice Rivlin, L. William Seidman, Lawrence Kudlow and many others. Names of speakers from previous years may be found here.
Our meetings feature a guest speaker who gives an educational presentation and entertains questions. WAMM’s presence in the nation’s capital has enabled us to draw some of the top financial and economic speakers to our educational program series.
We hold at least ten monthly meetings per year from September through June. Our meetings are held in downtown Washington, DC for the convenience of our members.
