Bryan Series

Legacy Society

The Bryan Series Legacy Society was established in 2011 to provide the opportunity for members to purchase premium seating and parking and engage with the speakers in a VIP reception. Annual memberships are $600 per person, a portion of which is tax deductible. In 2015-16, there were 178 members of the Legacy Society.

Legacy Society & Corporate Sponsorships


Thanks to the generosity of Bryan Series founder Joseph M. Bryan Jr. ‘60 and the commitments of our subscribers and sponsors, Greensboro and central North Carolina enjoy a public forum that rivals any presented by a college or university in America. In October 2011, Bryan made a $1.5 million gift to Guilford’s capital campaign, Advancing Excellence, to strengthen the endowment for the series.
