Why Attend FEE's Annual Retreat?

The Foundation for Economic Education (FEE) is engaged in cutting-edge, innovative, and inspiring efforts to bring the legal, economic, and ethical principles of the free society to today’s youth.

Why do we do this? Because today’s young adults are hungry for the ideas of liberty and yearn for the inspiration to be tomorrow’s leaders.

By attending FEE’s 2016 retreat, you will discover the secrets behind FEE’s role as one of the world's leading voices for economic liberty and individual freedom. You will discover how FEE is reaching the next generation with the ideas of liberty and ethical principles.

Our annual retreat features a close look at the workings of the most exciting organization in the world of liberty today. You will interact with intellectuals, socialize with other FEE supporters, and discover FEE’s plans for the future.

Join FEE for its 3rd annual retreat and learn how we’re inspiring freedom’s next generation with the humane values and ethical principles of a free society!
