The Wheeler Center Presents - "Divisiveness In Democracy", 9/9-10, Helena, Montana

September 2, 2016View for printing

Dear Friends of the Wheeler Center,

We are pleased to announce that we will be hosting our annual conference "Divisiveness in Democracy" on September 10th from 9 AM -5 PM with a pre conference lecture September 9th with Ted Celeste at 7 PM. All of this will take place at the Radisson Colonial in Helena Montana.

Enhancing Engagement in Montana

A day-long conversation about the changing political dynamics in Montana and the United States.

Regardless of one's political perspective, it's hard to claim that today's political climate is one that supports the development of effective legislative and policy solutions to complex problems. This day-long conference will not only explore the historical, political and social dyanmics that drive divisiveness, but will also draw in the experience and perspectives of up-and-coming politicians and mechanisms to overcome that divisiveness.

Please visit our Eventbrite pages to reserve your space as soon as possible. There are currently Early Bird rates available for the conference that will close on August 15th but the lecture with Ted Celeste is free but conference ticket holders will have priority seating.
