ACU Announces Featured Young Conservative Leaders at 40th Annual CPAC

February 5, 2013

WASHINGTON, D.C. – The American Conservative Union (ACU) today announced five up-and-coming leaders of the conservative movement as confirmed participants on a forward-looking panel to be featured during the 40th annual Conservative Political Action Conference: Alex Smith, National Co-Chairman of the College Republican National Committee; Francesca Chambers, Editor of Red Alert Politics; Kristan Hawkins, President of Students for Life; and Jeff Frazee, Executive Director of Young Americans for Liberty. The Future of the Movement: Winning with Generations X & Y, moderated by Alexander McCobin, President of Students For Liberty, will be one of many unique panels offered during CPAC 2013, America’s largest gathering of conservative leaders and activists.

“This year, on our 40th anniversary, we are placing a renewed focus on engaging our country’s youth and empowering this next generation of shining conservative stars,” said Al Cardenas, ACU Chairman. “The timeless values and principles that form our foundation have steered us in the right direction for countless years, and I firmly believe they stand true today. Each year thousands of young conservatives attend CPAC and this year in particular we want to ensure they have the tools they need to help combat the liberal agenda.”

The CPAC 2013 theme, America’s Future: The Next Generation of Conservatives, reflects a bright outlook for growth and achievement. With a steadfast focus on New Challenges, Timeless Principles, CPAC 2013 will delve into the delicate balance between continuing to honor our core principles of decades past and establishing a purposeful path to success for generations to come.

CPAC will be held March 14-16, 2013 at the Gaylord National Resort and Convention Center, offering three days of blockbuster speeches, policy discussions and networking opportunities – all celebrating the shared principles of smaller government, a strong national defense and traditional American values. For additional information, visit our website at conservative.org/cpac2013, on Facebook at facebook.com/CPACNews, or on Twitter at @cpacnews and #CPAC2013.  Media registration (including bloggers) is now open.
