The trustees of the Foundation for Economic Education (“FEE”) are seeking a President to succeed Lawrence W. Reed. The search is being undertaken at the request of Mr. Reed, who will become President Emeritus upon the appointment of the successful candidate. The target date for the transition is late 2018/early 2019.
In Mr. Reed’s ten-year tenure—the longest since that of FEE’s founder Leonard E. Read—FEE has experienced dramatic growth and has become one of the most dynamic and productive organizations in the free-market non-profit community.
Since our founding in 1946, FEE has devoted its efforts exclusively to the dissemination of the principles of classical liberalism. Since 2008, we have focused in particular on being the entry point for young people into the freedom philosophy and into the larger freedom-loving community. FEE’s ambition is to be the global leader in making the principles of a free society familiar, credible, and compelling to the rising generation.
To that end, FEE has gathered a team of professionals with expertise in the core disciplines of education, editorial, publishing, media, technology, and marketing. They are supported by experienced development, finance, and management teams, who have enabled us to triple our revenues and manage the commensurate growth in staff and activity levels over the past ten years.
