Information for the 2016 H.L. Mencken Club Conference


The 9th annual meeting of the H.L. Mencken Club will take place Friday, Nov. 4th through Saturday, Nov. 5th, near Baltimore, Md. The theme of this year's meeting is "The Right Revisited," a topic which is particularly timely in putting this year's unprecedented political events in perspective.

Hotel information and directions will be emailed to you when you register for the conference. We have obtained a special group rate of $92 per night for those who register early. The room rate of $92 per night is limited and offered on a first come, first serve basis, so please register early.

All conference registrations must be received by Oct. 28. No walk-in registrations will be accepted.

As the leading forum of the independent Right, the Mencken Club offers a home to those who want to discuss a wide range of issues completely free of concerns about political correctness. We are not a Beltway political organization, and we have no connections to either national party. Although most of those who come to our meetings identify, broadly speaking, with the intellectual Right, we welcome serious discussion from all sides of every issue we engage.

Your support today is vital for us to maintain our present efforts. More importantly, it will make our organization better known to the many Americans who are looking for alternatives to the vapid banalities of the Murdoch media empire.

Please consider making a tax-deductible contribution of $50, $100, $250, or $500. Whatever you can afford will keep us on a sound financial footing and enable us to attract the high quality of speakers who have made our conferences such memorable events. To donate, please click here.

The Mencken Club is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization and contributions to it are fully tax-deductible.
