Supporters Summit 2020

Registration closes on October 6. Advance registration and payment are required.
Join us for our 2020 Supporters Summit, October 8–10, at the historic Jekyll Island Club Resort, 371 Riverview Drive, Jekyll Island, Georgia.
It was at JP Morgan's club, where we will stay, where the central bank was first schemed. The damage it's caused has been inconceivable. (Listen to Murray Rothbard's fascinating account of this scheme.)
Lew Rockwell and Jeff Deist will host, along with guests Amity Shlaes, Judge Andrew Napolitano, Tom Woods, Tom DiLorenzo, Peter Klein, and Patrick Newman.
We’ll kick off on Thursday, October 8, with an End the Fed reception and dinner at the Jekyll Island Club Resort and tour of the room where the Federal Reserve Act was drafted. Friday includes breakfast, sessions, and lunch, closing with a fun, outdoor low country cookout. Optional activities on Saturday include brunch with the speakers, tour of historic Jekyll Island, golf or croquet on Jekyll Island, tour and shopping on nearby St. Simons Island, visiting the Georgia Sea Turtle Center, a dolphin watching cruise, and ending with cocktails on the veranda of Jekyll Island Club Resort.
