Young America’s Foundation is now accepting application
materials for our seminar on Mastering Conservative Rhetoric in
the Battle of Ideas
, which will take place February 7 to 9 at
the Hyatt Regency Washington on Capitol Hill.

Now in its third installment, this innovative seminar brings
together rhetoricians, speechwriters, and public policy experts to
train young leaders to master the use of rhetoric to advance
conservative principles.  Of particular emphasis this year is
communicating the moral case for free enterprise-an argument many
conservative leaders have failed to make.

Only 20 of the best and brightest up-and-comers in the
Conservative Movement will be selected to participate in this
seminar.  The limited capacity means you will receive
specialized attention, with the focus being on developing
your skills to accomplish
your goals.

By attending this program, you will hear from author, rhetoric
expert and Foundation director Wynton Hall and author, presidential
speechwriter, and YAF alumnus Marc Thiessen, among many others to
be announced.  You will also:

  • Explore the methods and presentation styles of the Conservative
    Movement’s most effective communicators, including Ronald
  • Engage in small discussions with fellow participants to
    actively hone your message
  • Learn concrete strategies to communicate conservative values to
    others in your community
  • Utilize new media effectively to reach new audiences with a
    conservative message.
  • And more!

To apply, please email a resume and brief essay on why you would
like to attend this seminar and how it will advance your personal
and professional goals to Katie Taran at

Katie Taran is the conference director at Young America’s Foundation.
