Panel discussions throughout the day-long event will explore the current political landscape and examine where the two parties may find common ground going forward to address the nation’s key policy issues.

“The summit has become an important hub for honest and constructive dialogue focused on how to achieve and implement politically viable solutions to address the problems facing the nation. We are delighted that BPC continues to support New Orleans and the greater community by bringing their annual conference to this great city each year, and we look forward to engaging in immediate post-election analysis,” said Matalin and Carville.
