Columbia, Darden, and NYU Chapters Spend a Weekend in D.C.

April 17, 2018

Last weekend, student members from our Columbia, NYU, and UVA Darden chapters trekked to D.C. for a weekend immersed in public policy. 

GarrettOn Thursday, members convened for a private reception with CBS Chief White House Correspondent Major Garrett (@MajorCBS). Mr. Garrett discussed his career in journalism and his latest venture, hosting a podcast called "The Takeout." He offered his perspective on the Adam Smith Society—comparing it to other successful organizations, particularly the Federalist Society. The evening closed with a Q&A session, discussing issues ranging from the role of journalism to the impact of President Trump's trade policy.

Department of JusticeOn Friday, student members met Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein and Deputy Associate Attorney General Stephen Cox for a private lecture and Q&A at the Department of Justice. The duo led a timely and informative discussion about the intersection of business and the judicial system.

Student members also traveled around the capital to hear from think tank experts and public policy officials, such as Doug Bandow (@Doug_Bandow) of the Cato Institute on foreign policy and national security, Brian Riedl (@Brian_Riedl) of the Manhattan Institute on taxes and budget, Stan Veuger of AEI (@stanveuger) on corporate tax reform, and Nick Myers, senior counsel to Senator Lindsey Graham, on the legislative process.
