Letter from the Executive Director& President
 
When I wrote the letter for SFL’s first Annual Report back in July,
I spoke of the tremendous growth we hadseen in just one year of operation, transforming from a mere idea to a full-fledged organization supportingthousands of students.
Well, as you’ll see throughout this report, it is my distinct pleasure to inform you
that SFLhas not only continued this incredible growth, but we have exceeded it in every capacity. In one semester wehave more than doubled the size of our student group network. We held more than twice the number of RegionalConferences in 2009 as we did in 2008, with seven times the number of students in attendance! The voice of liberty is stronger and more greatly embraced on campus than ever before. In short, the student movement forliberty is growing faster than ever and it is exciting to see Students For Liberty at the helm of the movement.Right now, the cause of liberty is beset on all sides by the threat of statism and the encroachments of basicrights. There are many individuals and organizations fighting for political power and arguing over the division of authority and goods without taking the time to question whether there is any legitimacy to that authority they seek or the goods they want to control. If we only look at the immediate circumstances surrounding our cause, thereare many reasons to be fearful.But looking upon the work that students are doing for liberty, I see the future leaders of liberty taking thehelm today. Why? Because I see students attending a SFL Regional Conference and in less than a month havinga fully functional student group on campus hosting Dan Griswold from Cato. Because I see student bloggersdefending freedom of speech so greatly that campus police fear them. Because I see student groups being cited inCNN for opposition to carte blanche restrictions on their actions. In short, I see students not only arguingamongst themselves about what level of taxation is most appropriate in a minimalist government, but holdingprotests to attract attention to the cause of liberty and following them up with educational events so others may
learn about the intricacies of the philosophy of liberty. With the passion of today’s student, t
he future of libertyhas never been brighter.Just look at the
visual representation of SFL’s Regional Conference
growth on the next page and there should be no question that the studentmovement for liberty is on the rise. (Take a look at the 2009 SFL RegionalConference Review for an in-depth look at how the Regional Conferenceswent.) We cannot underestimate the power of students and the inspirationprovided by liberty. Fall 2009 has been incredibly successful for SFL andthe student movement for liberty. I am anxiously looking forward to Spring2010 and the 2010-2011 school year!Sincerely & For Liberty,Alexander J. McCobinExecutive Director & Presidentamccobin@studentsforliberty.org
