|Description||A list of the known Cercle meetings.|
Le Cercle Meetings strictly follow the Chatham House rule, i.e. they are off the record. This presents a problem for the below list, which is very far from complete. The current schedule is believed to be (as stated on their short lived website) "semiannually", but David Rockefeller states in his autobiography that their meetings used to be thrice yearly. Little is known of most of these meetings, although some guest lists from the mid 1980s have been leaked (e.g. Le Cercle/1982 (Wildbad Kreuth), Le Cercle/1983 (Bonn), Le Cercle/1984 (Capetown)).
For its first 15 years, Le Cercle was an exclusively European affair. However, after involvement with figures from the US deep state, a US meeting first took place in the Rockefeller Center in New York on 6th December 1968. The current pattern is to alternate between Washington DC and Europe (or occasionally elsewhere).
