Bringing 68% Solutions back to America

Back in the day, we might have called our goal “statesmanship.” Once elected, leaders were expected to serve all citizens – whether they had voted for them or not – while working with political foes to govern.

slideshow-68 Become a member of the Village Square

Your $68 membership makes you part of what we’re calling “the 68% solution.” Our strange number refers to the 68.2% of a population that is within one standard deviation of the mean. This approach considers the more challenging engagement between the political left and right critical to creating intelligent solutions. 68% solutions are more durable solutions that transcend ideology, discourage political gutter ball, outlast the next election cycle and create a strong foundation on which to build lasting results.


As a member, you not only support the mission of the Village Square and help promote the Village Square events, but you will receive an invitation for you and a guest to all pre-dinner speaker receptions hosted by The Village Square Advisory Board. Pre-dinner receptions will be from 6:00 p.m. – 6:45 p.m. followed by the Dinner at the Square from 6:45 p.m. – 8:30 p.m.

Please note that membership does not include the price of the dinners.

You can become a Village Square member by signing up on the registration page for any one of our events or by clicking here.

Membership for the Village Square is yearly and runs from July 1st – June 30th.
