Over 150 attendees joined FEE last weekend for its first ever Inspire, Educate & Connect Summit in Naples, FL. The event was a success, with students, alumni, supporters and partner organizations coming together to create an exciting and engaging atmosphere. The day program included talks from FEE president Lawrence W. Reed, Illinois Policy Institute CEO John Tillman, and several other prominent speakers, all stressing the importance of reaching out to newcomers with the ideas of liberty.
The day program concluded with the Leonard E. Read Alumni Award dinner, where economist Stephen Moore served as keynote speaker. Following Mr. Moore's speech, Gordon Cruickshank was awarded the first ever Leonard E. Read Distinguished Alumni Award, which recognized his contributions to the liberty movement over the course of the last thirty years. We are looking forward to the continued growth of the event, so be on the look out if you would like to join us next year!
