Citizenship conference


Strengthening citizen participation will be the focus of annual meeting of  The National Conference on Citizenship, scheduled for December 3 in Washington, D.C.

Speakers will include Robert Putnam, professor at Harvard’s Kennedy School of Government and author of “Bowling Alone;” David McCullough, who won Pulitzers for his biographies of Harry Truman and John Adams; and Senator Lamar Alexander, former secretary of education.

The conference was established by Congress in 1953 with the goal of building a more active and aware U.S. citizenry.

This year’s conference is designed to allow leaders to share ideas and experiences, establish measurable goals for upcoming initiatives and provide a platform for organizations throughout the U.S. to announce new programs.
