Economic Policy Evenings

Since 1982, the ACCF has convened special events for Washington’s leading policymakers, the media and members of the business community. The ACCF’s unique and intimate forums build relationships and promote provocative dialogue on leading policy issues from diverse perspectives. Congressional participants range from progressive Democrats to Tea Party Republicans; journalists cover the spectrum from The New York Times and NPR to The Wall Street Journal and Fox News; and the business community is represented by corporate executives, trade association leaders, investors and entrepreneurs. In 2013, the ACCF hosted its 200th Economic Policy Evening, a renowned monthly event also known as “Washington’s Last Salon.”
