Federal City Council
The Federal City Council is a 501(c)(3) membership-based organization in Washington, DC. Led by former DC Mayor Anthony Williams, the Council endeavors to enhance DC’s economic and social progress by focusing the talents of Washington’s business and professional leaders on major problems and opportunities that are facing the City.
Since its founding in 1954, the Council has a rich history of achievement, having played a critical role in the creation of Metro, the renovation of Union Station, the establishment of the Verizon Center, and the redevelopment of Pennsylvania Avenue. The Council is also proud of its role founding some of the most important organizations in the District, including Union Station Redevelopment Corporation (1983), Economic Club of Washington (1986), and Washington DC Police Foundation (2000).Membership on the Council is highly selective and is limited to top business, professional and civic leaders who have a demonstrated concern for the nation’s capital, who desire to work through the Council to improve it, and who are in a financial position to help support the Council’s operations.
