Registration Open for 2023 Seminar

May 31, 2023

The annual seminar is Dec. 8-9 (attend one or both days). For details and tickets, please click HERE or on the artwork above.

Friday — “No Name Tag” We will convene in the Ford Room (new this year) where you still will be able to order food and drinks off the menu. Andrea Neal and Craig Ladwig are putting together a book celebrating the semiquincentennial of the Declaration of Independence. They are inviting the book’s contributors to help lead a discussion of how the Declaration’s principles apply to Indiana today. The work, to be published in March next year, will include a roundup of current issues in the manner of the foundation’s popular Indiana Mandate.

Saturday — Luncheon Seminar (the $65 ticket price includes 2024 membership). Dr. Dennis Ganahl will walk us through the do’s and don’t’s for challenging an incumbent in a primary, complete with Ganntt chart of tasks and a timeline. Ganahl, formerly the publisher of an outstate Missouri daily newspaper and later a journalism professor, has compiled an inviable record as an independent political consultant managing micro elections, defeating establishment opponents who outspent his clients as much as 10:1. Most recently he shepherded a tax cut through his state legislature that the leadership had publicly tagged a “non-starter” before the session began. Ganahl’s tactics are geared for the small campaign organized by friends and neighbors with a dedicated candidate but minimal funding.
