Registration Now Open for the 2017 BGD Legislative Conference Featuring David Gergen, Senior Political Analyst for CNN and Governor Eric Holcomb


INDIANAPOLIS, IN (September 29, 2017) – Join Bingham Greenebaum Doll LLP for the most authoritative annual event focused on Indiana policy at the Indiana Convention Center on Wednesday, December 13, 2017. Presented in conjunction with INGroup and scheduled only weeks before the Indiana General Assembly convenes, the BGD Legislative Conference offers first-hand information from decision makers, thought leaders, policy makers and engaged public servants from across the state. Participants mingle with Indiana's movers and shakers as they learn about the state capitol's hot topics in gaming, infrastructure and roads, energy, workforce development and more.

For 26 years, the event has attracted professionals in areas of law, business, industry, higher education, public education and government service including mayors, county and municipal leaders, legislators, lobbyists, school superintendents and the Statehouse Press Corps. The award-winning conference has hosted an impressive list of speakers and panelists, including Doris Kearns Goodwin, Gov. Mike Pence, Mayor-Elect Joe Hogsett, Gov. Mitch Daniels, and Chief Justice Loretta Rush, who delivered her first public address in office as our distinguished speaker in 2014.

This year's conference is proud to feature David Gergen, Senior Political Analyst for CNN as the 2017 Luncheon Keynote Speaker. Gergen is a professor of public service and co-director of the Center for Public Leadership at the Harvard Kennedy School, positions he has held for over a decade. In addition, he serves as a senior political analyst for CNN and works actively with a rising generation of new leaders. In the past, he has served as a White House adviser to four U.S. presidents of both parties: Nixon, Ford, Reagan and Clinton. He wrote about those experiences in his New York Times best seller, Eyewitness to Power: The Essence of Leadership, Nixon to Clinton (Simon & Schuster, 2001).

In addition, we look forward to welcoming Governor Eric Holcomb to address the Conference at 9:00 a.m. and outline legislative and policy priorities for his administration. The full conference agenda will follow in the coming weeks.
