Highlights
October 2016

Senator Tom Coburn was on the road for Smith Soc in late October, a guest of our Chapter at Dartmouth College’s Tuck School of Business and visiting with our affiliated students at Harvard Business School. In addition to being an advisor to the Manhattan Institute's Project FDA, the former Congressman and Senator from Oklahoma is also a successful businessman and medical doctor.

There seems to be no escaping debates at the moment. While the just-concluded Presidential Debates have been on the mind of most Americans during the month of October, Smith Soc chapters have taken the debate format and used it to highlight issues and discussions that matter to free market-minded business school students. Multiple chapters have taken on issues as wide-ranging as the relationship between the market and government, the viability of a carbon tax, and the implications of the Brexit vote.

September 2016

The Adam Smith Society is pleased to announce our two newest student chapters, both of which officially launched this week. Smith Soc now features chapters on the campuses of the University of Colorado Colorado Springs and Vanderbilt University. The chapter at the UCCS College of Business will be led in 2016-17 by Patrick Lazenby (President), Adrian Hope (Vice President), and Brandon Heinz (Treasurer).

July 2016

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.

The New York City Professional Chapter of SmithSoc held its Summer Reception on the evening of Wednesday July 27 at a Midtown rooftop bar and lounge. The chapter was joined by Leon Cooperman, the founder of Omega Advisors and acknowledged to be one of the most successful hedge fund managers today. Mr. Cooperman was interviewed by Tom Keene of Bloomberg Radio. Their conversation touched on a variety of topics, including Mr. Cooperman's history in the field of finance, his advice for young professionals, and his personal philosophy of philanthropy.
