UPDATE: 2016 North American Trilateral Commission list now available here.

Have you ever wondered who were the members of the Trilateral Commission, a group which has been in the forefront of world control conspiracy theories for decades? Corporate heads, government officials in trade and commerce, columnists and publishers are included, along with NGO chiefs. One question is whether public acclaim leads to membership in the commission, or does commission membership lead to opportunities unavailable to the average Joe? Regardless of the answer, the commission’s networking possibilities and possible paths to collusion are vast.

The following are  members as of April, 2015. ( italics emphasis by author)
