Great news from the Ayn Rand Institute:

We are writing with exciting news: as of today, registrations for Objectivist Summer Conference 2010 are on a record-setting pace, with 34% more registrants than we had at this time last year. At this rate, we anticipate our largest conference to date!

In response to this news, we have decided to extend our deadline for early registration discounts to Sunday, April 4.

This year’s conference takes place July 2-10 in Las Vegas, Nevada. Objectivist Conferences is the premier venue for high-caliber presentations by Objectivist scholars, and that is what we bring you this year as Leonard Peikoff presents “The DIM Hypothesis” (part 2), the six-part sequel to the groundbreaking series of lectures that he delivered to our conference attendees in 2007. The conference offers eleven general session lectures, sixteen optional courses, and a variety of social activities and special events.

For more information, please contact OCON Customer Service at [email protected], or call 800-365-6552, ext. 239.

We are looking forward to an inspiring and memorable conference–we hope to see you there!

Discount pricing expires Monday, April 5. Details are available on our registration options and pricing page.

You can register online here.

Special Update: In anticipation of Dr. Peikoff’s delivery of “The DIM Hypothesis” (part 2) at Objectivist Summer Conference 2010, the Ayn Rand Bookstore has agreed to extend a special discount on the price of part 1, which was delivered in Colorado at Objectivist Summer Conference 2007. This discount applies to registered conferees of Objectivist Summer Conference 2010 only. The course is now offered for $75, a 50% discount from its list price of $150. To claim this discount rate, call the Ayn Rand Bookstore at 800-729-6149 (949-222-6557 for international callers).

I submitted my own registration a few days ago, but I need to look at the schedule again — and seriously pare down what I’m doing. (Unlike in prior years, speakers need to choose what they’re taking in advance.) Obviously, my top priority has to be to give a kick-ass course, but I won’t be able to do that if I’m mentally or physically worn out. Given the slew of extra events that I’ll be doing, that probably means taking just one rather than two optional courses per session. If so, I’ll stick with Robert Mayhew and Eric Daniels in the “D” slot, then buy the others I want on audio cd. That’s too bad, but I’ll definitely have a far better conference if I’m not killing myself with a nutty schedule.
