TFAS Launches Telephone Townhall Series

//////////////////////

TFAS is now hosting bi-monthly Telephone Townhalls for its alumni and supporters. This initiative serves as a unique opportunity for supporters and alumni to interact with seasoned journalists as well as public policy makers and experts. The purpose of the conference-call sessions is to foster discussion about important issues facing the country.

These Telephone Townhalls began last year with a call with TFAS trustee and executive editor of The Weekly Standard Fred Barnes, followed by calls with Weekly Standard senior writer Stephen Hayes (A 94), Governor Mitch Daniels (Ind.) and former United Nations Ambassador John Bolton. The most recent call was with Charles Hurt, Washington bureau chief for the New York Post, on January 27.

During his townhall, Hurt discussed covering the new Congress. He told listeners that he looks forward to reporting on what he describes as a group that is driven, principled and concerned with the country rather than reelection. After speaking to alumni and supporters, Hurt opened the floor for Q&A.

Alumni are encouraged to participate in the next townhall with one of America’s most famous and outspoken economists, Dr. Walter Williams, on Tuesday, March 15 at 4 p.m. (EST). Williams is the John M. Olin Distinguished Professor of Economics at George Mason University and a nationally syndicated columnist. He speaks frequently to TFAS students, and his lecture is always a highlight of the program. He recently published his life story in Up from the Projects: An Autobiography.

Email Allie Henson at ahenson@TFAS.org for more information and to reserve your spot. Be sure to check Upcoming Events regularly for announcements on future townhall events.
