Washington Update with Vin Weber

I've been working with the Humphrey Policy Fellows alumni committee on a number of efforts to engage our previous fellows and program supporters since the 20th Anniversary Celebration. We're delighted to be kicking off our first gathering, directly following this upcoming Washington Update with Vin Weber, who served as co-director of the program for many years alongside Tim Penny. Given the amount of work that currently lies before Congress and the fast approaching elections, Vin should have quite a bit to share with us back home!


Washington Update with Vin Weber

Thursday, September 9th, 2010
4:00-5:15 PM
Humphrey Forum, Humphrey Institute of Public Affairs
301 19th Ave. S., Minneapolis

Join the Center for the Study of Politics and Governance for a presentation by Vin Weber, managing partner of Clark & Weinstock, who will offer his insights and viewpoints on the current political climate in Washington and other affairs. Conversation will be moderated by Professor Lawrence R. Jacobs.

Vin Weber is a senior fellow at the Humphrey Institute of Public Affairs. He is also actively involved in the Humphrey Institute Policy Fellows program. He served in Congress from 1981 to 1993, representing Minnesota’s Second Congressional District. He is a partner at Clark & Weinstock, a consulting firm that provides strategic advice to institutions with matters before the legislative and executive branches of the federal government. Prior to opening Clark & Weinstock’s Washington office in 1994, Weber was president – and co-director with Jack Kemp, Jeane Kirkpatrick and Bill Bennett – of Empower America, a public policy advocacy group. In 2001, he was elected chairman of the National Endowment for Democracy (NED), a private, nonprofit organization designed to strengthen democratic institutions around the world through nongovernmental efforts. Weber is a regular commentator on National Public Radio and is often sought as a political analyst for network programs such as CNN’s Capital Gang.
