While we do allow on-site registration, you are encouraged to register as early as possible so we can accurately estimate attendance and to give yourself time to plan your stay in Washington, DC.
No meals will be provided by Students For Liberty with the exception of Saturday night’s Awards Dinner. If you’d like to attend the Awards Dinner, make sure to select it as an add-on when registering. Light refreshments will be provided at the evening socials.
There are many inexpensive dining options near the conference venue and the final program booklet will include a list of lunch and dinner options in the area.
The ISFLC dress code has evolved over the years to match expectations for young professionals in the work force. While this means the dress code is more flexible than it’s been in years past, all attendees are encouraged to consider how their appearance reflects on the student liberty movement and to dress their best for the weekend. Students For Liberty leaders are required to dress at least business casual and should contact their Regional Director with any related questions or concerns.
The dress code for Saturday night’s Awards Dinner is black tie optional.
Yes! Non-students, and especially SFL alumni, are encouraged to attend the ISFLC and will find a great deal of programming that appeals to both students and professionals. One aim of the conference is to provide our student leaders with professional contacts in the liberty movement and to provide movement professionals with talented student contacts. It’s also a great place to reconnect with fellow liberty advocates as one of the few times a year we’re all gathered in one place. And with this year’s theme of reunion and reflection, look out for special sessions focused on alumni and young professionals in the liberty movement.
Unfortunately Students For Liberty is not able to provide travel support or purchase hotel rooms for general attendees. Hotels rooms are available at a reduced price for conference-goers and can be reserved here.
Student leaders in other regions should contact their Regional Director or staff liaison to discuss options for travel support.
Definitely. Students For Liberty prides itself on taking a “big tent” approach to promoting liberty. This means not only that pro-liberty people of all types and backgrounds are welcome to join in the fun, but also that there’s no requirement to have prior knowledge of libertarian thought, economics, or any particular approach to liberty. We’re all here to learn and ISFLC is meant to bring together many different approaches to liberty. We’d love to have yours represented!
Every year, SFL receives dozens of requests for an invitation letter to attend the ISFLC. Because of the overwhelming quantity of requests we have received in the past, SFL’s Washington, DC office no longer issues invitation letters. Please locate and contact your local SFL leader to obtain a visa letter. If you are unable to locate someone in your region, please contact Matthew Needham at firstname.lastname@example.org for assistance.
Attending the ISFLC can be overwhelming at times and we understand that not everyone will make it to every session. That said, you’re encouraged to attend as many break outs and main stage speakers as you can both to show to respect to the speakers we’ve invited and so you can get the most out of your weekend.
In the past, students have sometimes organized additional programming for the weekend. While this sort of initiative is still encouraged, if you do organize such an event, please contact someone on SFL’s staff so we can include them in promotion and logistics.
