Membership

Join the Adam Smith Society

Becoming a member of the Adam Smith Society is more than just joining a club. Your "Smith Soc" membership gives you access to an expansive network of other MBA students and professionals who, like you, value debate and discussion about the moral, social, and economic benefits of capitalism. To support and promote these ideas in the mainstream conversation, we need the commitment of members like you.

As a paid member, you will be able to:

  • Attend local and national events, including debates about a range of policy issues, and discussions about the relationship between the economy, government, and society
  • Hear directly from distinguished business and thought-leaders, such as Paul Singer, Ken Griffin, David Booth, and so many more
  • Connect with business people across the country who share an interest in ideas and a passion for the free market
  • Be a part of the greater community of the Manhattan Institute—a national public policy think tank and home of the Adam Smith Society. Read more about how Manhattan Institute and the Adam Smith Society are connected.

To join, pick the level that’s right for you and start enjoying the benefits of membership today! Questions? Visit our FAQs page.
