For the last 38 years, Heritage has hosted the annual Resource Bank meeting to bring together conservative leaders and organizations from around the country and around the world. Attendees talk strategy, share tactics and best practices, and work to strengthen the movement.
This year’s meeting took place last week in Bellevue, Washington. Highlights of the agenda include:
- Strategy sessions on issues like education reform, restoring federalism, health care, social services, grassroots organizing, educating more Americans about conservative principles, and more.
- A keynote address by Maine Gov. Paul LePage about state-based conservative reforms
- A speech by Ann McElhinney, who most recently crowdfunded a movie about abortionist Kermit Gosnell
- The awarding of the Salvatori Prize to the American Council of Trustees and Alumni for their “What Will They Learn” project, which seeks to raise education standards.
- A dinner hosted by Heritage’s Steve Moore and Heritage trustee Steve Forbes.
As Heritage Foundation Founder Ed Feulner has always said, it is better to add and multiply the conservative movement than it it to divide and subtract. That’s what Resource Bank is all about.
Do you think it’s important for conservatives to work together and share ideas about how to succeed?
