The Institute was proud to welcome Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) as the inaugural speaker of our first public program, Getting to the Point. The program was moderated by New York Times reporter Jackie Calmes.

In a nod to our location on Columbia Point, Getting to the Point convenes individuals with diverse perspectives to discuss the current issues and challenges facing our community and government. The series will take on various formats from town halls to keynote lectures and panel discussions, and will showcase speakers from Members of Congress and public officials to celebrities, business people, academics, and ordinary citizens.
