About the 1818 Society

The 1818 Society was formed in 1978 as the organization of World Bank Group retirees. The Society has traditionally had two main purposes: facilitating contacts among former staff and acting as a liaison with the Bank on matters of concern to retirees such a pensions and health insurance. In addition, it provides opportunities to members for continuing learning, seminars on a variety of subjects of interest to members, social interactions with other members, participation in various active lifestyle activities, and generally remaining connected with fellow alumni and the World Bank.
