Description

The BB&T Centers and professors annual conference is joining this year with the Classical Liberals in the Carolinas to host a joint conference in Winston-Salem, North Carolina this August 8–10, 2019.

The conference theme is: “The Future of Jobs: Obstacles and Opportunities in the Carolinas.” We will have keynote speakers, plenary panels, and breakout sessions addressing issues such as poverty and inequality, obstacles to prosperity, the gig economy and its creative destruction, and paths forward—all with a focus on North and South Carolina.

The conference begins with a dinner and keynote speech on Thursday, August 8, continues with plenary and breakout sessions through Friday, August 9, and ends by 12 noon on Saturday, August 10.

Our featured keynote speaker for Thursday evening will be David Mounts, chairman and CEO of Inmar, Inc. John Allison is also a confirmed keynote speaker. The itinerary will be posted on our websites once it is finalized.

The conference is sponsored in part by John Allison, the American Institute for Economic Research, the Bastiat Society, the Wake Forest University BB&T Center for the Study of Capitalism, Classical Liberals in the Carolinas, and the Charles G. Koch Foundation.
