February 21, 2013

WASHINGTON, D.C. – The American Conservative Union (ACU) today announced Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal will address CPAC 2013 – the 40th annual Conservative Political Action Conference. America’s largest gathering of conservative leaders and activists will be held Thursday, March 14 – Saturday, March 16, 2013.

“Governor Bobby Jindal represents a new generation of governors leading the conservative movement,” said ACU Chairman Al Cardenas. “We look forward to welcoming Governor Jindal back to the CPAC stage and hearing about the many conservative solutions he introduced in Louisiana.”

Before becoming Governor, Jindal previously served two terms in the U.S. Congress representing the First District of Louisiana, where he was elected Freshman Class President and served as Assistant Majority Whip. In 1994, Jindal went to work for McKinsey and Company as a consultant before entering public service. In 1996, he was appointed Secretary of the Louisiana Department of Health and Hospitals (DHH). In 1998, Jindal was appointed Executive Director of the National Bipartisan Commission on the Future of Medicare as well as President of the University of Louisiana System, the 16th largest higher education system in the country.

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.
