January 12, 2014 | By Kasia Klimasinska |

Tickets are still available for Wednesday's Club luncheon with International Monetary Fund Managing Director Christine Lagarde. She will speak immediately after returning from a trip to Africa.

Wednesday's lunch will begin at 1 p.m., different from the customary schedule, with the speech and question-and-answer session beginning at 1:30.

As the leader of the IMF, Lagarde has in hand economic research of the organization's 188 member countries. She'll discuss the prospects for U.S. and global economic growth, recovery in the European Union, and the IMF's mission to support low-income countries by increasing the availability of credit.

Tickets are $21,up to a maximum of two, for Club members, and $35 for all other non-member tickets. Tickets may be purchased by clicking here. For questions, please e-mail or call 202-662–7501. Tickets must be paid for at the time of purchase.

Club members who wish to attend the preluncheon reception must RSVP separately to 48 hours before the event. Space may be limited. You must have a paid reservation to the luncheon to attend the reception.

To submit a question in advance, put LAGARDE in the subject line and e-mail to before 10 a.m. on the day of the luncheon.
