Supporters Summit 2020
October 8, 2020 – October 10, 2020Jekyll Island, Georgia
Join us for our 2020 Supporters Summit, October 8–10, at the historic Jekyll Island Club Resort on 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, David Stockman, Tom Woods, Joe Salerno, Tom DiLorenzo, Peter Klein, David Gordon, Mark Thornton, and Patrick Newman.
We’ll kick off on Thursday, October 8, with a gala 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 an oyster roast on the beautiful beach of Jekyll. 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, or a trip to the Georgia Sea Turtle Center, a dolphin cruise, and ending with cocktails on the veranda of Jekyll Island Club Resort.
