Smith Soc welcomed leaders from all 25 student chapters, as well as representatives from a number of prospective chapters to New York City on Saturday July 30 for the annual Leadership Retreat. Meeting at a Midtown private club, the chapter leaders experienced a day-long program of training and information sessions, led by Smith Soc’s staff and several of the organization’s most successful alumni. The day culminated in a rooftop reception and talk by Adam Smith Society co-founder and Advisory Board member, Marilyn Fedak.
This event provided the opportunity for chapters to learn first-hand the intricacies of running a Smith Soc chapter on campus, as well as network, and discuss new program ideas and opportunities for collaboration. Coming out of the event, Smith Soc is looking forward to productive and successful 2016-17 year on campus.
