Atlas Summit 2012
The 2012 Atlas Summit has come and gone. But what an event it was! From everything I heard from participants, to looking at my own goals as Conference Director, it was a huge hit!
We experimented with a new, more compressed schedule for our annual summer seminar this year. The Renaissance Washington DC Downtown provided comfort and elegance. Our speakers left everyone charged up with fresh ideas and renewed idealism.
Over the weekend, I was able to increase the total number of scholarship students accepted to 36, from an already high number in the low 20s. It's all thanks to our donors, with special thanks to Ashwin Vasan, who came through in the pinch with a donation that made it possible add 13 students right away, many from abroad
The Atlas Summit is going to be fantastic! It's our Summer Seminar on steroids, packed with headliners and fascinating content. It's where the open Objectivist movement will be this summer!
For those coming to the Atlas Summit from out of town, here's a primer on places to stay.
Atlas Society trustee Cliff Asness of AQR Capital Management appeared on the Stossel Show this week to discuss the inefficiencies of government regulations. You can meet Asness at the Atlas Summit. (Early bird registration for The Atlas Summit ends May 22.)
As manager of our student scholarship programs for many years, I have never seen such a huge a rush of students interested in our Atlas Summit scholarships as we are seeing this year. But our scholarship fund is running low. Objectivism's future needs your help!
Duncan Scott will be speaking about Atlas Shrugged Part 2 at the Atlas Summit!
Thanks to generous support from our donors, TAS is able to offer financial aid to students to cover the registration fee, room and board, and even in some cases travel costs. We are partnering with Universidad Francisco Marroquin in Guatemala to offer "Becas Objetivistas" packages including travel to students from there interested in Ayn Rand's ideas.
