The Family Leadership Regional Summit is a multi-speaker policy/issues event, similar to TFL’s annual Family Leadership Summit held in Ames each year. The evening event (tentative start time at 6:30 PM) will feature state and national conservative leaders with the end goal of educating Iowans about the issues that impact their families.

Former U.S. Senate primary candidate Sam Clovis, Pastor Cary Gordon of Cornerstone World Outreach, Alison Howard of the Alliance Defending Freedom, Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal, and former Senator Rick Santorum are confirmed speakers for the first regional summit at Dordt College. Sue Thayer, a former Planned Parenthood clinic manager now turned pro-life activist from Storm Lake, Iowa, will also be a special guest.

The theme of this Summit will focus specifically these key issues: the sanctity of human life and the public funding of Planned Parenthood. While America is reeling over gruesome and startling videos exposing Planned Parenthood’s alleged sale of baby body parts, even without the mothers’ permission, many are asking, “What are our leaders going to DO about it?”

Among other topics, the speakers at the NW Family Leadership Regional Summit will seek to answer that question.

The FAMiLY LEADER will partner with the Dordt College Political Science department for the NW Iowa Family Leadership Regional Summit. Founded in 1955 as a teacher’s college with a firm commitment to the Reformed faith, Dordt College now offers masters’ degrees in education as well as four-year degrees in more than 90 programs of study, including engineering, agriculture, and nursing. Dordt’s distinct and organic integration of faith and learning, as well as its reputation for academic excellence, have contributed to the college’s consistent mention on best college list by U.S. News & World Report, Forbes.com, and Money Magazine.

Bob Vander Plaats, President & CEO of The FAMiLY LEADER Foundation said, “We are very excited to be coming to beautiful Dordt College in Northwest Iowa with our third Family Leadership Regional Summit. And we are thankful for the opportunity to assist and serve Iowans by providing intentional avenues of education to help them learn about policies and issues that impact their families.”

The Family Leadership Regional Summit will be a ticketed event and tickets are complimentary.
