Mastering Conservative Rhetoric in the Battle of Ideas

June 08, 2011

Hyatt Regency Washington on Capitol Hill, Washington, D.C.


The Details

Do you have what it takes to be the next Great Communicator?   President Ronald Reagan was a skillful debater and used classic American rhetoric to advance his ideas and inspire the American people.  Conservative leaders since him have often struggled to articulate and effectively advocate those ideas.  Obama, on the other hand, has used effective oratory skills to advance his agenda and entice the American public with his vision of big government.

Young America’s Foundation invites full-time college students and young professionals to attend the second annual Mastering Conservative Rhetoric in the Battle of Ideas seminar at the Hyatt Regency Washington on Capitol Hill, from June 8 to 11.  This program seeks to train rising young leaders to master the use of rhetoric to advance conservative principles.
