The Politics Online Conference sits at the intersection of smart politics, good governance, transparent democracy, and innovative technology, spotlighting tools, applications, strategies, and ideas that affect a range of functions, from writing policy to organizing democratic movements to running a smarter political campaign to building dialogue with your constituents.

People come to the Politics Online Conference to learn about cutting-edge trends and to gain access to the visionaries who make those trends possible. They come to find solutions. They come to discuss their ideas with other experts in the field and outside the Beltway. And they come to network.

Some of this year's highlights include:

  1. Elected and Connected panel on Tuesday, April 21 at 8:30 a.m. with Senator Claire McCaskill, Rep. John Culberson, Rep. Steve Israel, Rep. Cathy McMorris Rogers, and Rep. Tim Ryan.
