The Thirty-Fourth Annual Conference organized by the Association of Private Enterprise Education (APEE) took place in Guatemala City from April 5 to 7, 2009. This year, Universidad Francisco Marroquín hosted this important event, in which approximately 180 participants—from the United States, Spain, Argentina, Chile, Mexico, Guatemala, Montenegro, and other countries—came together to discuss and exchange ideas on "Institutions, Rule of Law and Prosperity."

At the opening reception, UFM President Giancarlo Ibárgüen S. and APEE President Gerald P. Dwyer welcomed the participants. Roberto Salinas León, APEE vice president, explained the theme of this year's conference: Institutions, Rule of Law and Prosperity. He described Universidad Francisco Marroquín as "a world-class example of how the ideals of liberty can make a difference."
Each year, APEE presents a number of awards recognizing individuals who have contributed to the cause of private enterprise and education. This year, the Herman W. Lay Memorial Award was presented to Jeff Sandefer, director of the Acton MBA program; José Piñera, senior fellow of the Cato Institute, received the Adam Smith Award. In his acceptance speech, Piñera talked about the significant changes that occurred in Chile's economy after free market principles were applied.
