ABOUT THE 2017 CONSERVATIVE LEADERSHIP CONFERENCE
The 2017 Conservative Leadership Conference, unlike past CLC’s, consists of a Friday evening dinner with a top-notch speaker, followed by a full day of breakout sessions featuring policy experts from around the country, conservative thought-leaders, media personalities, and political figures.
The 2017 CLC will feature breakout sessions on Saturday only. The result is a stronger slate of speakers and even better attendance.
This year, at a time when opportunities to reduce the burden of government and achieve conservative victories in North Carolina and across the country are more plentiful than ever, the CLC will highlight and encourage innovative reforms and strategies to eliminate government roadblocks that prevent us from pursuing our dreams.
