"This year's conference is sure to follow in the footsteps of the election itself, producing an unprecedented range of participants and a compelling outcome, with spirited discussions and in-depth analyses from numerous prominent experts," said David Ellis, Chief Content Officer, CQ Roll Call. "As the host, we take pride in our ability to detail the impact of the most exciting election of all time in a way that only we – as the authority covering Congress – can."
An impressive roster of experts – along with the editorial teams of CQ, Roll Call and The Economist – will examine for attendees the election's impact on vital policy areas such as health care, defense, energy, budget and appropriations, cybersecurity and domestic policy. Tom Daschle and Trent Lott will also be on hand to sign their book, "Crisis Point: Why We Must – and How We Can – Overcome Our Broken Politics in Washington and Across America".
"The Election Impact Conference serves as another way to bring to life the meaningful and insightful coverage our readers rely on us for," said Kris Viesselman, Vice President and Editor in Chief, Roll Call. "We create and deliver uncompromised news coverage that is neutral and accurate and explains who and what are propelling the work of Congress, which is now more important than ever."
As part of the event – and to commemorate the new class of lawmakers – CQ will unveil its "Guide to the New Congress" special issue. Produced for associations, advocacy groups and other entities that seek to understand the power shift that has occurred and determine what it means to their respective organizations, the report profiles every new lawmaker and committee, with detailed statistics, key dates and insights about evolving agendas.
"With dozens of new lawmakers, new party leaders, and major committees with new chairpersons, the power dynamics between the two chambers and the White House will be altered completely," said CQ News Director and Vice President Steve Komarow. "That means how you approach advocacy — and sometimes, literally, who you approach — will be different in the 115th Congress. Our in-depth guide helps de-code both the people and the process."
