About Us

The H. F. Langenberg Memorial Speaker Series, with the sponsorship of the Hammond Institute, provides a spirited focus on public debate and discussion under the broad umbrella of political economy. Come prepared to engage in stimulating conversation and opportunities to network with respected members of the Saint Louis & Saint Charles communities.

A generous gift from The Discussion Club, the former Saint Louis premier interactive speaker series, provides the foundational support to continue these opportunities to hear leading industry professionals. We are also a member of the Bastiat Society: a global network of principled business leaders. Guest speakers will discuss timely social, political, and economic issues. The speaker series will offer at least two annual events.

All events are open to the public.


The Speaker Series is a chapter of the Bastiat Society, an international network of individuals interested in sound economic principles.
