Since 2009, the Bipartisan Policy Center (BPC) has convened an Annual Political Summit in New Orleans. Far beyond the Beltway, BPC’s summit brings together Washington’s top leaders to discuss the current political landscape and examine where the two parties may find common ground going forward to address the nation’s key policy issues.

Hosted by popular political duo James Carville and Mary Matalin, the event features current and former elected officials, national political strategists from both sides of the aisle, and prominent pollsters and journalists.
