*Special Notes:

This year’s Symposium is covering new subject matter that has not been addressed previously. In talking with some youth ambassadors and others, it has become obvious that many young (and not so young) people are experiencing difficulty with anxiety. In addition to the usual topics regarding the proper role of government and free market economics, we are fortunate to have added experts who deal with anxiety and safety.

We are encouraging parents and other interested adults to attend sessions FREE.
