Get an immersive experience in the policy-making process, as shaped by the White House, federal agencies, Congress, think tanks and civic groups. As the original MPAC Young Leaders Summit, the Government Summit has achieved an unprecedented level of access to decisionmakers and thought leaders in our nation’s capitol, relationships built by our talented and dedicated DC staff.
Last year, the delegates met with President Barack Obama’s Senior Adviser Valerie Jarrett and Deputy National Security Adviser Denis McDonough, as well as Congressmen Keith Ellison (D-MN) and Andre Carson (D-IN), the Brookings Institution and the Center for American Progress.
