Not to be confused with the even more select Bilderberg advisory committee
The Bilderberg Steering committee chooses the guests so plays an important role in the Bilderberg. It is chosen by the even more select Bilderberg advisory committee which typically has about 7 members, all of whom are former members of the steering committee. It has had 183 known members over the years, listed on the right. Typically around 25-30 are members at any one time.
The steering committee contains a lot of bankers and businessmen, with particular companies being well represented, (such as IBM and Coca Cola). It contains some diplomats, politicians, editors, academics and journalists, but only a few spooks or deep politicians. Quite a lot of the businessmen members of the committee are also members of the 1001 Club and/or speakers at the World Economic Forum. Usually, members of the steering committee are serial Bilderberg attenders, but some - such as Klaus Schwab - attend only infrequently.
Decision making power
The Bilderberg Steering Committee decides whom to invite to meetings, and attempts to select those with a compatible worldview as regards one world governance. Most of the members are businessmen and/or bankers from Western Europe or USA. Sometimes special guests are invited, such as Bill Clinton, who attended the October 6, 1995 meeting at the Four Seasons Hotel in Washington DC.
Minutes of some of 20th century Bilderberg Steering committee meetings are now available online as is correspondence about business of the committee. In 2012, 21st Century Wire announced a steering committee meeting was happening in Rome a day before it took place.

A Document by Bilderberg/Steering committee
|File:Discussion on Weaknesses of Western Society.pdf
|12 January 1958
|Response to "The Weakness of Western Society" by Rudolf Mueller
|“Break with tradition, or so it seems. Vilified by the entire Rockefeller and liberal media establishment, but strong evidence he himself is "conservative CIA". Brought to power by "conservative CIA" CNP financiers/members as the Mercers, Steve Bannon and Kellyanne Conway. Trump himself has many long-standing, curious security state and establishment ties, among them: in December 2000 Trump was part of a 94-guest dinner organized by Bilderberg steering committee-, Pilgrims Society-, and 1001 Club-member Conrad Black, where Trump was seen chatting with Henry Kissinger at a table. Happy Rockefeller, the widow of Nelson Rockefeller; Lynn Forester de Rothschild, Richard Perle, Vernon Jordan and later exposed serial pedophiles Jeffrey Epstein and Ghislaine Maxwell all were part of this dinner.”
