Much has changed in Milwaukee’s business community with the growth of multinational corporations and the lack of businesses that call Milwaukee their home. Yet, the need to bring the leading-edge thinkers of today to Milwaukee has not changed. For the past fifty years, the Wisconsin Forum has provided an opportunity for Wisconsin libertarians and conservatives to interact with Nobel Prize recipients, members of government both here and aboard and an assortment of speakers that may have been unknown at the time, but are prominent leaders of today.
Through the schedule of dinner meetings, The Wisconsin Forum helps to fulfill its role in bringing articulate speakers to Milwaukee to discuss economic, moral and philosophical principles which have as their basis the concept of individual freedom and responsibility.
Members of The Wisconsin Forum have an unflagging respect for initiative and the free-marketplace of ideas and economic activity. Members feel the best government is the least government. These are the principles which guide the Forum on its educational mission.
