Who We Are
WAMM is a public organization formed for the education and exchange

public and investment professionals from a wide array of organizations
in and around Washington DC and Baltimore.

WAMMís mission is to educate the public and its members with timely

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. WAMMís presence in the nationís 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.
