Welcome to GLO
Our purpose is to extend a beacon of reason to those in southeast Michigan who are enthusiastically interested in studying Ayn Rand's philosophy of Objectivism and applying it to the success of their lives. We hold monthly dinner meetings at our house in Redford (just west of Detroit), every 2nd Saturday.
Please join us for GLOCon 2014
Friday–Monday, September 19–22
Reserve your tickets for the conference below. We have two full days of fun and informative presentations, a tour and a cruise, and social gatherings in between. GLO is as friendly as it sounds! If you're interested in reason, individual rights and capitalism, please drop us a line.
The agenda for GLOCon 2014 is finalized!
For those coming in from out of town, if you like, our GLO Peeps have nice, comfortable rooms at their homes.
Don't be shy - we're not! Please contact us if you are interested in going on the cheap!
Otherwise, here are a few hotel options:
• 2.6 Miles — Comfort Inn Plymouth

We can easily coordinate rides for those flying in as well! We've mapped an overview of locations in Plymouth.
