In the face of an increasingly progressive left, starting your career in the public policy arena can seem daunting. Yet it’s never been more critical for talented conservatives to serve and thrive in key positions on Capitol Hill and in the conservative movement.

Why is your career success in conservative public policy essential to the future of the country? How do you advance conservative values while working in DC without becoming part of the problem?

Congressman Chip Roy, a leading conservative champion in the U.S. House of Representatives and former senior staff member in the U.S. Senate, will answer these questions and more.

Join us for refreshments with a view of the DC skyline from our rooftop terrace, learn about upcoming professional development opportunities, and network with like-minded conservatives.


  • 6:00 – 6:45 pm: Networking Reception with Heavy Hors d'oeuvres 
  • 6:45 – 7:30 pm: A Conversation with Congressman Chip Roy (livestreamed for virtual participants)
  • 7:30 – 8:30 pm: Rooftop Dessert Reception
