Bob Vander Plaats, President & CEO of The FAMiLY LEADER said, “We are thrilled to publish our signature events for the coming year and look forward to educating our significant statewide and national networks regarding issues that impact their families. Due to Iowa’s pivotal first-in-the-nation caucus status, these events are sure to garner much media attention and pro-economic, pro-constitutional, and pro-family attendance.”

The primary purpose of the four Family Leadership Regional Summits is to provide Iowans from all corners of the state with opportunities to learn about issues that impact their families from national and state leaders.

The purpose of The Family Leadership Summit is to make aware and to educate a broad base of attendees regarding national leaders’ foundational worldview and their view on issues that impact the family. The Summit will provide guests the opportunity to hear top conservative national leaders, gathered together in one place, cast their leadership vision for advancing conservative principles.

The Presidential Family Forum serves as the culmination of The FAMiLY LEADER Foundation’s educational initiatives for the 2016 Iowa caucuses. This forum will purposefully examine and assess each candidate’s stated pro-family vision. Observers will learn what candidates believe about an issue, why they believe that way, how their beliefs frame their ultimate vision for America, and the level of sincerity for implementing their stated vision.

Confirmed speakers, venues, and times for all events will be released as they become available.
