Membership in the Hudson Union Society® grants you unparalleled, first-hand access to the world's movers and shakers.

The Hudson Union Society® represents a democracy of voices sustained by the sharpest minds in business, science, government, and the arts. Become a member today, and strike up a conversation with those whose opinions underlie society's most provocative discourses.

Our annual event schedule casts velvet ropes aside to grant members exclusive access to prestigious speaking events, red-carpet film premieres, and a multitude of mixers and galas at select locations around Manhattan. Catch notes as they pirouette through the air at live music performances, or dodge verbal daggers as leaders spar in parliamentary-style debates about topics of contemporary global importance.

Many of the world's most distinguished luminaries stop by the Hudson Union Society® to report on the annual fluctuations in culture's pulse rate, and our members rarely miss a beat to these intimate disclosures and a routine supplement of star-studded soirees. Rarely do such constellations converge under a single roof, but the Hudson Union Society® remaps the boundaries that traditionally separate society's boldest architects from its daily participants.

To complement this lineup of visiting luminaries, the Hudson Union Society® regularly arranges cocktail events where fellow members can mingle, network, and hatch strategies for world domination in a casual setting. These members-an esteemed amalgamation of business executives, lawyers, doctors, diplomats, actors, musicians, writers, researchers, students, and countless others-benefit as much from forging relationships with one another as they do from attending our high-profile events.

In the interest of fostering a dynamic intellectual community, the Hudson Union Society® is open to prospective members of all personal, professional, and educational backgrounds. If you are open-minded and eager to share your perspective with others, there's a seat for you at our table.

The Hudson Union Society® offers a veritable smorgasbord of membership types, each with its own treasure trove of perks.
