Leadership, Members & Fellows

Leadership, Members & Fellows

The Trilateral Commission consists of three main regional groups: North America, Europe, and Asia Pacific. The leadership in each consists of a Chairman, Deputy Chairmen, and Executive Director. The Commission also has an Executive Committee consisting of 74 members.

When the Trilateral Commission was first launched, the intention was to have an equal number of members from each of the three regions. The numbers soon began to grow, and ceilings were imposed by around 1980. These ceilings have been raised somewhat since then as new countries came to be represented in the groups.

The North America Group includes members from Canada, the United States, and Mexico. It has a total of 124 members.

The European Group includes members from Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Croatia, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, Luxembourg, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Serbia, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, and the United Kingdom. It has a total of 184 members.

The Asia Pacific Group includes members from Australia, China, India, Indonesia, Japan, Malaysia, New Zealand, Philippines, Singapore, South Korea, and Thailand. It has a total of 96 members.

To help preserve the Commission’s unofficial charter, members who enter into government role must rotate off the Commission. New members are selected annually. The procedures for rotation and recruitment vary by national group.

In recognition of the Trilateral Commission’s founder, David Rockefeller, all three regional groups also have a David Rockefeller Fellows (DRFs) program.

Our global members represent countries for which there is no national group.
