Our goal is to introduce you to the same top-notch training and networking opportunities made available at our exclusive annual National Convention in Washington, D.C. You will discover new ideas, connect with local leaders, and just have a good time advancing the youth movement for liberty. We’ll also bring exciting keynote speakers—the top names of the liberty movement.
