Individual Membership

As an individual member of the American Council on Germany, you gain access to a forum where concerned professionals can engage in informed discussions with European and American thought leaders. The ACG’s policy discussions, conferences, Political Salons, “Hot Topics” conference calls, and exchanges enable interested individuals to explore the issues that shape policies and opinions on both continents. 

With its broad-based membership, experience, and contacts in government, industry, academia, and the media, the Council is uniquely equipped to conduct a diverse array of impactful activities. Speakers have included the German Chancellor, German Federal Ministers, prominent Bundestag Members, U.S. government officials, senior European Union officials, leading members of finance and industry, and many others. Individual members are entitled to receive the ACG’s weekly news digest, monthly newsletter, and Occasional Papers, as well as a subscription to Handelsblatt Global.

Membership dues and gifts to the Council are tax-deductible to the extent allowed by law. Note that most members are entitled to an annual online subscription to Handelsblatt Global, which is valued at $25. Any member who takes advantage of the subscription to Handelsblatt Global must subtract the $25 value of the subscription from his/her tax deduction.

To apply, please submit the following:

  • a letter of nomination from a current member, Board member, or officer of the ACG and
  • your CV or biographical sketch.

Nominations are regularly presented to the Board of Directors for approval. The nomination procedure and membership are automatic for individuals who have participated in any ACG fellowship or Young Leader program, with the names being put before the Board solely for advisory purposes.

Application materials should be submitted to info@acgusa.org with “Membership Application” in the subject line.
