How Would You Balance the Federal Budget?

How Would You Balance the Federal Budget?

Tuesday, March 5, 2019 - 4:30 pm

Understand the complexities of balancing the federal budget and the difficult policy choices lawmakers face in this interactive workshop led by staff from the non-partisan Concord Coalition. This 2-hour event kicks off with a short overview of federal spending, followed by the 90-minute Principles and Priorities exercise. Working in small groups, participants will review current federal spending priorities, tax policy and entitlement reform options and apply their own principles and negotiating skills to put forward a consensus-based deficit reduction plan. It’s an eye-opening experience designed to educate voters on the political will and compromise required to address our spiraling national debt.

David Oman, Senior Advisor to the Concord Coalition and former Chief of Staff for Governors Robert Ray and Terry Branstad, will facilitate the workshop. The Concord Coalition is a bipartisan national organization that for 25 years has worked to encourage a balanced federal budget. 

Participants are asked to attend the entire 2-hour event.

Sponsored by the Department of Political Science and American Democracy Project.

Do You Know Your Neighbor w/ Keynote Speaker Diana Patton

Do You Know Your Neighbor w/ Keynote Speaker Diana Patton

Tuesday, March 5, 2019 - 6:30 pm


Join Keynote Speaker, Diana Patton on Tuesday, March 5, 2019 from 6:30pm - 8:00pm in Maucker Ballroom (B)

How well do you know your teacher, fellow students, coworker, teammate, and roommate ... well, your neighbor? The more you know someone, the more you understand them, and learn why they do what they do. Most of us don't know the person we sit right next to every single day, or even the person that lives right across from us. Sadly, that results in a lack of connection, acceptance, confidence, and even a feeling of safety.  

Diana Patton, national speaker, attorney, consultant, author will ask, “Do You Know Your Neighbor?” Diana will share her remarkable story, as told in her memoir, Inspiration in My Shoes, and provide her perspective on the journey of diversity and inclusion, and how our own unconscious biases can impact our ability to get to know one other.

Diana will also share how getting to know others has impacted her career, her struggles, and her success. She'll share the five steps we all can take to get to know our neighbor, so that we can thrive in our communities by building relationships.  

**Diana will host a book signing opportunity immediately following Diana's presentation from 8:00-8:30**
