Roger Ream Elected as FEE’s New Board of Trustees Chairman

JUNE 16, 2014

FEE is proud to announce that Mr. Roger Ream, President of The Fund for American Studies and the Foundation for Teaching Economics, has been elected by FEE’s Board of Trustees as Chairman.

Roger has a long association with FEE. He is a FEE seminar alumnus who served as Director of Programs from 1979-1982 under our founder, Leonard E. Read. He previously served on FEE’s Board of Trustees from 2004 – 2013.

“I am honored to serve as chairman of the FEE Board. We can never take liberty or free markets for granted. We all have an obligation to teach each new generation the ethical, economic, and legal principles that allow individuals to flourish and societies to enjoy peace and prospertity. That is FEE’s mission.”

For more than 35 years, Roger Ream has worked in the fields of education and public policy. In 1991, he joined The Fund for American Studies as executive vice president and was named president and chief operating officer in 1998. 

“To the board once again, Roger brings a seasoned managerial expertise as well as the deepest appreciation for FEE and its philosophy, things we greatly benefited from in his prior years of service,” said FEE president Lawrence Reed. Executive director Wayne Olson added, “With Roger’s deep understanding of FEE’s heritage as well as of today’s market realities, he is well positioned to lead the board during our current phase of innovation and growth, focused on introducing more young newcomers to the freedom philosophy.”

Prior to joining TFAS, Ream was a founding staff member and vice president at Citizens for a Sound Economy, an economic policy organization in Washington, D.C. He has also served as special assistant to two members of Congress. He was a founding member of the Frank S. Meyer Society and currently serves as its secretary. He also serves on the boards of Donor’s Capital Fund, the U.S. Air Force Academy Foundation and the International Freedom Educational Foundation. He is past president of the Philadelphia Society and a member of the advisory boards of America’s Future Foundation, the Philanthropic Enterprise and Talent Market.

Ream received his B.A. from Vanderbilt University. A native of Wisconsin, he is married and has three daughters.

Unfortunately, educating people about phenomena that are counterintuitive, not-so-easy to remember, and suggest our individual lack of human control (for starters) can seem like an uphill battle in the war of ideas. So we sally forth into a kind of wilderness, an economic fairyland. We are myth busters in a world where people crave myths more than reality. Why do they so readily embrace untruth? Primarily because the immediate costs of doing so are so low and the psychic benefits are so high.
