Annual Conference Speaker to Help Attendees Decode U.S. Politics

Annual Conference Speaker Amy WalterAmy Walter, National Editor of the Cook Political Report, will be the closing speaker at next week’s NFPA Annual Conference. Little did we know when booking Amy all those months ago that 2016 would be such a tumultuous political year. What no one expected in the presidential race to happen is happening. Combine that with an unexpected Supreme Court nomination on the line, and 2016 will be a political year to remember.  Needless to say, Amy Walter is an expert on all of this and more. Amy will examine events taking place on the political stage, not just as a political handicapper, but more importantly, how political change driven by the presidential race might be expected to affect regulatory issues, technology funding, taxation and trade.

If you haven’t registered for the NFPA Annual Conference, scheduled for March 9-11, at the La Cantera Hill Country Resort, in San Antonio, there is still time. Click here to see all the details and who is registered.
