Continued Conversations with Ben Barnes

Jan 12, 2021

Tuesday, January 12, 11:30 a.m. CST – Online event

Last fall we introduced a new members-only series titled “Continued Conversations.” The speaker will make remarks and then take questions from the virtual audience. On January 12, we’ll host former Texas Lieutenant Governor Ben Barnes at 11:30 a.m. CST.

About the Speaker
Barnes's keen political insight, hard work, and charisma made him a protégé of President Lyndon B. Johnson and an ally of Governor John Connally. He was elected to the Texas House of Representatives at the age of 22, the youngest-ever Lieutenant Governor, with more votes than any statewide candidate in Texas history. His legislative legacy has benefited generations of Texas public school students and he has helped to transform Texas into a technological hub.

Barnes is a gifted fundraiser and a trusted advisor in Washington, DC. Recently, the Houston Chronicle named him one of the “Ten Most Powerful Texans in Washington.” His understanding of political networks gives him a sense of what needs to be done and how to do it correctly.

Barnes will speak briefly about the Biden Administration and what’s ahead for Congress, and will then answer member questions. We will be using a Zoom webinar. Zoom is free to the public but you will need to download it to your computer or device first. You can download Zoom here. If you are unfamiliar with Zoom, please let us know. We would be happy to send you some tips and a link to an online tutorial that will help you get started.

Advance registration is required; your membership must be current to participate.
