For more than three decades, The American Council for Capital Formation has served as a liaison between Washington’s leading policymakers, the media and members of the business community. The ACCF has a proud history of hosting forums and intimate events that build relationships and promote provocative dialogue on today’s leading policy issues.
For nearly 25 years, policymakers, business leaders, members of the Washington diplomatic community, and journalists have participated in ACCF Economic and Environmental Policy Evenings hosted by the ACCF and the Center. These off-the-record sessions provide a unique opportunity for high-ranking Administration officials, prominent members of Congress, leaders from the business community, and senior diplomats to discuss economic and energy/climate policies in a current and topical context.
For nearly thirty years the American Council for Capital Formation and its public policy affiliate, the ACCF Center for Policy Research, have sponsored Capital Formation Forums to promote an informed dialogue between policymakers and business and association representatives on timely economic policy issues.
The ACCF Policy Council plays an important role in shaping ACCF’s policy agenda. The Policy Council meets several times each year for off-the-record forums on timely economic and environmental issues of concern to ACCF members. These forums feature a roundtable session with a key economic policymaker from Congress or the Administration. Associations representing all sectors of the economy – including financial services, manufacturing, high tech, small business, venture capital, real estate, agriculture, and others – are welcome to participate in the ACCF Policy Council.
The ACCF Benefactors Program encourages individual supporters to participate in and help develop economic policy research projects sponsored by the Center that are of particular interest to investors and entrepreneurs. The Center’s projects focus on the economic impact of the death tax and issues in fundamental tax reform. Benefactors also participate in ACCF-sponsored forums and ACCF Economic/Environmental Policy Evenings. Membership in the program is limited to enable each Benefactor to be closely involved in the Center’s work.
