The 6th Annual William F. Buckley Jr. Society Leadership Retreat: “The Ongoing Progressive Assault on the Constitution”

Fort Lauderdale, FL

As a member of ISI’s William F. Buckley Jr. Society, you not only join a select group of top ISI supporters dedicated to furthering the mission and vision embodied by ISI’s first president, William F. Buckley Jr.; you also have the opportunity to attend an exclusive weekend retreat where you see the ISI program in action and spend time with exceptional ISI students, influential conservative thinkers and leaders, and like-minded ISI supporters.  

At the 2016 retreat, for example, Buckley Society members met and mingled with nationally syndicated radio host and NBC commentator Hugh Hewitt, Institute for Faith, Work, and Economics vice president Anne Rathbone Bradley, Wake Forest economist J. Daniel Hammond, Common Sense Economics coauthor Tawni Ferrarini, and University of Colorado Colorado Springs political scientist Joshua Dunn, coauthor of the groundbreaking book Passing on the Right: Conservative Professors in the Progressive University. A highlight of the retreat was a panel discussion on the state of the campus featuring four outstanding ISI student leaders.  

Join us in Fort Lauderdale for the 6th annual Buckley Society Leadership Retreat from Thursday, April 19, through Sunday, April 22, 2018. In addition to spending time with leading conservative thinkers, members of the ISI team, and fellow ISI supporters, you will see the ISI educational program in action: some forty outstanding ISI students will gather for one of ISI’s immersive weekend leadership conferences. You won’t want to miss seeing the “ISI magic” that so many students speak of.   


Buckley Society members give ISI $10,000 annually or an estate gift of $200,000 or more. To find out how you can attend the 5th annual Buckley Society Leadership Retreat, please contact Joseph Corey at 302-524-6127 or
