Why Start a Bastiat Society chapter?
We are the only international network of business men and women committed to advancing peaceful trade and human flourishing.
The Bastiat Society's executive staff and directors work hard to provide our chapters with the resources they need to operate efficiently. From facilitating shared knowledge through speaker databases and a network directory, to designing and negotiating strategic partnerships for our chapters.
Our chapter leaders benefit from our executive team, board of directors, and a growing network of like-minded business leaders who are dedicated to helping you and your chapter. We work tirelessly to reduce chapter costs and advance the network around the globe.
What we expect from our chapters:
- Be apolitical. Meetings must focus on ideas - not people or politics.
- Host at least six liberty-minded events each year.
- Be organized by business professionals and have its target audience be business professionals.
