Eagle Forum Holds Successful Leadership Conference

Eagle Forum welcomed nearly 300 leaders to their national leadership conference on the weekend of September 21-23. Cindy Honcoop, Anne Culbertson and Luanne Van Werven represented Washington Eagle Forum at the St. Louis conference. It was highly informative and motivational with a lineup of 29 speakers. 

Phyllis Schlafly presented an Eagle Award to Anne Culbertson for her effective contribution to the conservative pro-family movement. Congratulations Anne!

The Friday program featured a panel of authors who were filmed for Book TV on CSPAN2 to be shown in the near future. John Lott, author of Freedomnomics, challenged the half-baked economic theories of socialist-leaning academia, Jed Babbin, author of In the Words of Our Enemies, talked about which foreign countries pose a threat to the U.S., Dr. Jerome Corsi, author of The Late Great U.S.A., warned of the coming merger of the U.S. with Mexico and Canada, and Robert Spencer, author of the Politically Incorrect Guide to Islam, described the differences between Christianity and Islam.

We were honored to hear major speeches by two presidential candidates: Rep. Tom Tancredo and Rep. Duncan Hunter. Rep. Tom Tancredo’s speech against illegal immigration brought the crowd to its feet.

The legendary Pat Boone, who has sold over 45 million records and recorded 38 Top 40 Hits, gave an inspiring message on “Preserving America’s Independence” and finished the evening by singing his own composition “With God.”

Sunday’s session featured a fabulous report from Eagle Forum’s Washington DC Executive Director Jessica Echard on “Doing the Impossible: Defeating Amnesty in the Senate.”

Eagle Forum is a national conservative pro-family organization of volunteers founded in 1972 by Phyllis Schlafly. Eagle Forum trains its members to participate in the public policymaking function, especially in education, foreign policy, and constitutional issues.  We invite you to join us next year in Washington, DC.
