Chapter Leaders Gather in Dallas

By: Roger Custer

This past weekend, America’s Future Foundation chapter leaders and staff gathered in Dallas, Texas for AFF’s annual Leadership Conference.  Leaders and staff discussed a strategic vision for AFF’s future and participated in a roundtable on improving and enhancing AFF’s presence nationwide.

Attendees heard from speakers Bob Ewing, the Director of Media Relations for the Mercatus Center at George Mason University, and Roger Custer, Executive Director of AFF, about engaging Millennials in making the moral case for freedom.  Participatory discussion followed both speakers.

The weekend-long retreat allowed chapter leaders and staff the time to learn from one another and network, while providing impactful training on outreach and cultivating new relationships.  Josh Connelly, board member of AFF Houston, noted:

The training I received at the 2016 Leadership Conference will directly impact my ability to lead the chapter in Houston and advocate liberty nationwide.

Founded in 1995 in Washington, D.C., America’s Future Foundation has grown quickly over the last several years.  Currently, AFF is active in 27 cities, including Chicago, New York, San Francisco, Detroit, and Washington, D.C.  Professional development opportunities, like AFF’s annual Leadership Conference, empower young leaders to advance the principles of free markets, limited government, and personal responsibility.  AFF is a 501(c)(3) non-partisan educational non-profit.
