Analyzing the Outcomes:
A 2008 Post Election Debrief

Wednesday, December 10th

Phoenix Park Hotel
520 North Capitol Street

8:30am – 5:30pm

Philanthropy for Active Civic Engagement (PACE) and Funders’ Committee for Civic Participation (FCCP) invite you to join with colleagues to assess the results of this historic election and explore what it means for the civic engagement community over the next four years.

Throughout the day pollsters and pundits, practitioners and academics will help us analyze the results of the election and identify new opportunities and directions for the philanthropic community.  We’ll close the day with a panel of funders, representing both PACE and FCCP, reflecting on lessons learned from this election and where the field should go next. The day will begin with breakfast and close with a reception from 4:30 – 5:30pm featuring special guest, Congresswoman Donna Edwards (invited).
