I just recently returned to Ohio, after attending the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) in Washington D.C. last week. Turning Point USA, by far had the largest presence, of any organization, at CPAC. Most organizations had 1 small booth, Turning Point USA had 3 massive booths, and over 300 student ambassadors in attendance. It has become increasingly clear to me, over the past 8 months of employment, that Turning Point USA is not a typical organization. Everything we do as an organization raises the standard of excellence for all other youth based organizations.
At CPAC, we were able to collect thousands of college aged students contact information, all of whom believe in limited government and free markets. CPAC is the only place, where thousands of young conservatives meet simultaneously, every single year. This is why it was necessary to bring 300 of our best student activists, these ambassadors were able to recruit other conservatives they met while attending networking events, panels, and speakers. Turning Point USA’s influence at CPAC has increased every year since being founded in 2012, I can’t wait to see what we do next year!
