ACCF Webinars

To further the ACCF mission of public policy to stabilize and grow the economy, the ACCF is hosting a webinar series “U.S. Economic Policy in the COVID Economy: The Challenges for President Biden and the 117th Congress.”

Building on our ACCF forums and “Washington‘s Last Salon,” which we’ve now hosted over four decades, these webinars are 30-minute conversations with prominent Democrat and Republican members of Congress, former and current economic policymakers, and business leaders from the broad spectrum of the US economy.
