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 mainstream conversation, we value committed members like you.

As a paid member, you will be able to:

  • Attend private and large-scale events, including salon dinners and 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, Carly Fiorina, David Booth, and many more
  • Connect with leading experts from across the globe who share an interest in ideas and a passion for the free market
  • Become a part of the greater community of the Manhattan Institute—the nation’s leading public-policy think tank and home of the Adam Smith Society. Read more about how the Manhattan Institute and the Adam Smith Society are connected.
