Former Senator Rick Santorum to Join Speaker Line Up at

The FAMiLY LEADERSHIP SUMMIT

 

Urbandale, IOWA – The FAMiLY LEADER, in conjunction with Citizens United, Heritage Action, and The National Organization for Marriage, is pleased to announce the addition of former Senator Rick Santorum to the speaker line up at The FAMiLY LEADERSHIP SUMMIT on Saturday, August 10th in Ames, IA.   The Summit will start at 10 a.m. and conclude at 7 p.m.

The purpose of The FAMiLY LEADERSHIP SUMMIT is to educate and mobilize the conservative base regarding worldview application and issues that impact the family.  The Summit will provide Iowans the opportunity to hear top conservative national leaders, gathered in one place, cast their leadership vision.

Bob Vander Plaats, President & CEO of The FAMiLY LEADER said, “This year’s theme is ‘Leading with Principles Over Politics,’ and attendees will be encouraged to stay true to their values, no matter what political winds may blow.  We were very blessed last year to have Senator Santorum as a featured speaker at the inaugural Summit, and we are extremely pleased to welcome him back to Iowa for this year’s Summit.  We have asked him to speak about a major threat to American families and the necessary leadership solutions to address that threat.  Santorum is near and dear to Iowans’ hearts and we are thankful he will be a featured speaker at our event.”

Invited speakers include Governor Sam Brownback, Governor Bobby Jindal, Governor Rick Perry, Senator Rand Paul, businessman Donald Trump, actor/radio host Stephen Baldwin, Senator Ted Cruz, Penny Young Nance, Senator Jim DeMint, Senator Marco Rubio along with many others. Additional press releases will be sent as speakers are confirmed.

“I am greatly looking forward to speaking at this year’s FAMiLY LEADERSHIP SUMMIT. This gathering of conservatives provides each of us with an opportunity to exchange ideas and discuss the path forward as we tackle the moral and cultural challenges facing our country.  The FAMiLY LEADER has provided exceptional leadership on these issues, and I appreciate the opportunity to join them for this year’s summit,” said Rick Santorum.  Senator Santorum will be joining the author and architect of The Truth Project, Dr. Del Tackett.  Dr. Tackett will set the foundation for this Summit by challenging attendees with the question, “Do we really believe that what we believe is really real?

Due to a sold out venue and the expressed enthusiasm for last year’s Leadership Summit, The FAMiLY LEADER has secured Stephens Auditorium in Ames, IA as this year’s venue. Tickets will go on sale July 1 at www.TheFamilyLeadershipSummit.com.

“One of the hopeful outcomes of the Summit is to bring conservatives together early and consistently in the process leading up to the 2016 elections.  We believe that by laying this foundation through an intentional leadership summit, the likelihood for conservatives to coalesce in a spirit of unity for impact and influence in 2014, 2016, and beyond will be greatly enhanced,” said Vander Plaats.
