The political epicenter of our nation, Washington, DC, can be mysterious, exciting and, in some cases, intimidating. Pull up a seat for this Virtual Town Hall as we pull back the curtain and give you an insider's view of the inner workings of policy and politics in DC. Hear from fresh industry peers, Hill staff and policy ‘operatives’ about what really makes the wheels turn – or not - in the capitol of the free world. This session is perfect preparation for attending The Washington Conference in September!
