2017 Manning Centre Conference
Great speakers. Interesting topics. Lots of networking and training opportunities.
That's what you can expect at the 2017 Manning Centre Conference - February 23-25 in Ottawa!
The theme for the upcoming conference is "Take the Lead."
We'll be exploring how our movement can 'take the lead' in a number of different policy areas and we'll again be offering training sessions so that conservatives and libertarians can lead on social media and other campaign-related skills. And last but not least, we're also pleased to announce we'll be hosting a leadership debate featuring contenders for the Conservative Party of Canada's leadership race.
While we're still at the early stages of planning the upcoming conference, we're confident that it's shaping up to once again be the event for conservatives and libertarians to attend in Canada.
Over the coming months we'll be posting more details on speakers, panel topics, training sessions and other conference details. In the mean time, below are some details that have been confirmed for the conference. (Click here to see pictures & videos from past conferences)
