The speakers themselves are selected by participating colleges and universities. St. Norbert College is one of only two schools in Wisconsin that present the entire series. (UW-Milwaukee is the other.)

Admission to individual sessions are $5 at the door, and briefing books are available for $15.The briefing book includes background information on the lecture topics and access to the association's website, http://www.fpa.org, for resources, guides to topics and online discussion forums.
