The following photos were taken at the Conservative Leadership Conference that was hosted by the Civitas Institute in Raleigh, North Carolina, on March 2nd and 3rd, 2012.  The mission of the Civitas Institute is to facilitate the implementation of conservative policy solutions to improve the lives of all North Carolinians.   The guest speakers for this sold out conference  were Charles Krauthammer, the celebrated American Pulitzer Prize-winning syndicated columnist and political commentator, Arthur Brooks, President of the American Enterprise Institute (AEI), a non-partisan public policy think  tank in Washington, D.C.,  and Jason Lewis, host of the nationally syndicated Jason Lewis Show and author of “Power Divided is Power Checked:  The Argument for States’  Rights”.   As you can see from the photos, we all had a wonderful time at this two-day conference that was filled with powerful talks by the guest speakers and extremely informative workshops that will help us to sharpen our conservative skills for the crucial upcoming November election.
