Conservative Leadership Conference Set for March 27-28 in Cary
“Lt. Gov. Forest has spoken at previous CLCs, and he has offered attendees both valuable insights on state government and inspiring expressions of conservative ideals,” said Jim Tynen, communications director of Civitas. “He will be a fine addition to our slate of speakers, which includes Dr. Ben Carson as the keynote speaker.”
In 2012, in his first run for elected office at any level, Dan Forest became only the second Republican since 1897 to be elected Lieutenant Governor in the state of North Carolina. His ascent to the state’s second-highest office came after he personally travelled nearly 300,000 miles to all 100 counties.
This same work ethic was demonstrated in his previous career. A registered architect, he rose from office intern (while in college) to Office President and Senior Partner of the North Carolina’s largest architectural firm over his 22-year career.
Lt. Gov. Forest serves as President of the North Carolina Senate, is on on the State Board of Economic Development, is a member of the NC Military Affairs Commission and chairs the the Energy Policy Council.
His passion and priority in the Lt. Governor’s Office is innovation through education. As Lieutenant Governor, he is a voting member of the State Board of Education and serves on the NC Community College Board. He is a supporter of Mastery Based Learning, chairs the Governor’s eLearning Commission, and is a member of the State Board of Education’s Special Committee on Digital Learning,
CLC is the premier conservative conference in North Carolina. Every year at CLC, hundreds of concerned Americans come together to learn about, discuss, and advance free markets and conservative ideas. For more information, go to civitasclc.com/.
