What makes leaders effective in an environment that is rapidly changing, volatile, and unpredictable? And what makes those effective leaders get the most out of life?

Scholars & Fellows

The U.S. Chamber of Commerce Foundation’s Scholars & Fellows program assembles experienced thought leaders and business professionals to help identify emerging issues that will impact the business community in the future.  Each entering class is assigned core strategic areas of interest in which to produce unique research products and presentations. These are shared through the various platforms of the Emerging Issues team, including its website; social media pages; events; and award-winning journal, the Business Horizon Quarterly (BHQ).

The 2012-2013 Class of Scholars & Fellows includes:


  • John Raidt, Advisor to the Chairman, U.S. Chamber of Commerce; Senior Fellow, Atlantic Council
  • Bret Swanson, President, Entropy Economics LLC
