We will meet in extraordinary Asheville, North Carolina, famed for its natural beauty, shopping, alternative medical care, weather, and intellectual climate.

This off-the-record 2016 Supporters Summit isn't a libertarian version of Bilderberg, Bohemian Grove, or the Trilateral Commission. We work for opposite goals, of course.

But like them, we want a private discussion among our donors about what's ahead, and what to do about it. 

With us will be Ron Paul, Judge Andrew P. Napolitano, Lew Rockwell, Jeff Deist, a libertarian from Wall Street, a brilliant entrepreneur, and others.

But it won't be all serious. We'll have a guided tour of the magnificent Biltmore House, followed by a cookout and live Nashville music at the estate's Antler Hill Barn. We won't live like the Vanderbilts, but it will be a grand and glorious time, for fun and friendship as well as serious discussions and decisions for the future.

Registration is $395 for Mises Institute Members ($595 per couple) and includes sessions, Friday dinner-reception, Saturday breakfast and lunch, transportation to the Biltmore Estate, with tour and cookout.
