Pop culture tells us we have powerhouses like Claire Danes of Homeland keeping our national security in check or leaders like Martin Sheen of The West Wing or Kiefer Sutherland of Designated Survivor being put to the test with unthinkable daily political dilemmas.
But, what’s it really like?
Join us for an insightful and completely ‘Off-The-Record’ conversation with some of Indiana’s leaders who have spent time working inside the walls of the White House.
Registration and networking will begin at 9:30 AM. The program commences promptly at 10:00 AM.
We are excited to hear from our esteemed speakers for Off The Record
