The Fifth Annual Carl B. Menges Colloquium will be held April 12-15, 2012, at the Turning Stone Resort in Verona, NY and is dedicated to “Binding the Minotaur: The Problem of  Limited Government.”

Mr. Menges is a founding board member of the Alexander Hamilton Institute which is featured in ACTA’s Intelligent Donor’s Guide to College Giving. He was also Director, Tiedemann Investment Group; Trustee and Chairman of the Planning Committee of Hamilton College; Trustee of the Boys Club of New York; and Treasurer and Trustee of Allen Stevenson School. He is a Life Trustee of the Hospital for Special Surgery in New York City and Member, Investment and Budget Committee, Council on Foreign Relations, and a Trustee of the New-York Historical Society.
