Students For Liberty’s newest leaders have been working hard since they were elected at the 2010 ISFLC in February to prepare for their official term beginning on July 1st. At the week-long Leadership Retreat in the beginning of June the new Executive Board members planned out the coming year, delegated tasks, and developed projects that will help bring the student movement for liberty to the next level.
To help introduce the leadership, each team member has a profile posted on the website. Take some time to learn about the folks that will be a driving force behind SFL’s upcoming projects and conferences. The profiles are listed on the website under About >> Leadership, but you can click here to be directed to that page.
The profiles have the email address for each team member, so please contact any leader with questions about SFL or the student movement for liberty. Of course, you can always friend them on Facebook too!

Students For Liberty is a volunteer-run organization. However, the organization has grown so rapidly in its first couple years, that we needed to hire a small full time staff to keep the organization running.
Clark Ruper is the Vice President for Students For Liberty. Clark is responsible for overseeing the organization’s principal programs and daily affairs. An alumnus of the University of Michigan, Clark has been involved in most every pro-liberty student group known and has a wealth of experience in the pro-liberty nonprofit community.
Peter Neiger has joined the team as the Internal Operations Manager. Peter will be working closely with Campus Coordinators as well as measuring the success of Students For Liberty’s projects.
Blayne Bennett is the Communications Manager for Students For Liberty and is responsible for Students For Liberty’s outreach and media efforts.
