Emerging Issues Forum 2011

The University Club

Chicago, Illinois
October 13, 2011 (All day)

    On Thursday, October 13, The Heartland Institute will host its Seventh Emerging Issues Forum (EIF), a day-long policy conference in Chicago bringing elected officials, policy experts, and Heartland supporters from around the country together to discuss the biggest public policy issues on the horizon. The event will take place at the University Club, 76 East Monroe Street in downtown Chicago.

    Prominent policy experts from across the country will be featured in panel discussions addressing a wide range of issues, including climate change, budgets, education, health care, technology, and more.

    The goal of the EIF is to give lawmakers insight into new issues they may face ... and the innovative free-market policy ideas that are being developed to solve them. This event will look at the problems state lawmakers are likely to face as a result of new federal laws and the continuing economic struggles. It will also shed light on trends in policy from across the country.

    Registration will open at 7:45 a.m., the program begins at 8:30 a.m., and the event concludes at 3:30 p.m. We look forward to seeing you there!

    P.S. for Elected Officials Only: To encourage your attendance at the Emerging Issues Forum and 27th Anniversary Benefit Dinner, The Heartland Institute will waive your registration fee.

    If you are a member of The Legislative Forum at The Heartland Institute, Heartland also will arrange and pay for two nights’ accommodation and reimburse you up to $500 for travel expenses.
