No matter what the type of organization, playing an active role in the political decision-making process and policy formation is no longer a luxury—it is an imperative.
Policy Directors Elizabeth Gore and Elizabeth Maier bring their broad knowledge of congressional issues from both sides of the aisle together for a discussion on the state of the Republican Party, tax reform efforts and the on-going repeal and replace attempts. Brownstein Strategic Advisor Sen. Mark Begich moderates a discussion that also covers how the Congress can move things forward before the end of the year.
When it comes to making a difference in our community, Brownstein Hyatt Farber Schreck is all in! From our Karma Volunteer program to Lunch & Learn educational presentations to extensive pro bono and board service, giving back is, and always will be, part of our DNA.
