Keeping America Safe: Strengthening Diplomacy and Development Alongside Defense
This session offers an opportunity to hear from two of America’s most seniormilitary leaders and diplomats who served together in the frontline states about how strategic investments in diplomacy and development are critical to our national security.
America's Global Economic Engagement: The Return on Investment for Prosperity and Jobs
This session highlights America’s global economic engagement and the return on investment on our prosperity and jobs at home.
Choose from several concurrent workshops examining issues addressed by U.S. international affairs programs, in preparation for Congressional meetings the next day.
With 95% of the world’s consumers living outside the United States, learn how diplomacy and development build and open new markets for American private investment in some of today’s fastest growing economies.
Learn how strategic investments in diplomacy and development are helping to build more a prosperous, democratic, and peaceful Africa – at a time when the continent is at the same time home to some of the fastest growing economies and constrained by poverty, fragile infrastructure, and weak governance.
Learn how America’s civilian agencies and their partners are working together to counter violent extremism and safeguard America’s national security by addessing its drivers – lack of opportunity, insecurity, injustice, and hopelessness.
Join us for a discussion on how America can build on its leadership in global health to address today’s challenges. From PEPFAR to the President’s Malaria Initiative, America’s investments in global health have saved millions of lives, but the world continues to face threats from infectious diseases like Zika and Ebola.
Two of America’s most respected foreign policy journalists will share their insights into “America First” and how the United States is responding to today’s global challenges.
Insider briefing for participants to fully prepare for Congressional meetings, including a discussion of issues to be addressed and opportunity to strategize with members of your state delegation.
6:00pm - 7:30pm
Special opportunity for participants to network with other state leaders from across the country, while exploring the USGLC’s Global Impact Project Expo, featuring the latest innovations in global development.
Prior to meeting with Members of Congress, hear from prominent officials about the political landscape in Washington. Transportation will be provided from the hotel to Capitol Hill for Summit attendees.
10:00am - 4:00pm
Join with other members of your state delegation for a day of meetings on Capitol Hill to discuss the importance of U.S. foreign assistance and diplomatic programs. Lunch will be provided for all participants.
4:00pm - 5:30pm
Connect with Congressional champions at the Reserve Officer's Association and conclude our Capitol Hill Day.
It's such a diverse group of people. It takes me out of my usual world of Miami and brings me together with leaders from all across the United States from all different fields. It's a fantastic group of people.
I'm very engaged with business and industry and politics. Besides that, there are folks here that work on diplomacy every single day in different areas than I usually engage with. So networking is everything.
Our engagement with the international community is inextricably tied to our economics here…as well as the safety of our country. I support that, and that's why I'm here.
This is the third conference that I have attended. For me, just personally, it's a very important mission. If you look at what's happening in the world today, never has the ability of the United States to lead been more important.
We get to network with everybody else who's doing similar work to us. It's really helpful in terms of finding partners for programs and learning more about international relations and development…so that we can do our job even better in the future.
Day One of the Summit will take place at the Washington Marriott Marquis at 901 Massachusetts Ave, NW.
