Dear MPS Members:

We cordially invite you to attend MPSTexas19, a regional meeting of the Mont Pelerin Society, to be held on May 19-22, 2019.

The meeting theme, "Contentious Issues in Classical Liberalism," is intended to push the boundaries of how we understand the science of liberty. Our goal is to create a dialog on the cutting edge of classical liberalism that will push everyone’s comfort zone and force them to evaluate alternative positions of how to best promote and preserve classical liberal values. We believe this follows closely in the spirit of our society’s objective “by facilitating the exchange of views among minds inspired by certain ideals and broad conceptions held in common, to contribute to the preservation and improvement of the free society.”

The meeting will be held at the Worthington Renaissance Hotel in the heart of downtown Fort Worth, Texas. Fast-growing Dallas-Fort Worth is the 4th largest metropolitan area in the United States and boasts a diverse array of businesses and cultural attractions. Located in the heart of North America, Dallas-Forth Worth sits at the crossroads of the new global economy with direct access to dozens of the world's great cities. We look forward to welcoming our fellow MPS members and their guests to our great city and state.

We look forward to welcoming our fellow MPS members and their guests to the Republic of Texas.
