CAFP is pleased to announce that we have received an invitation from the US Former Members of Congress (FMC) to join them at their annual meeting in Austin, Texas, June 14-17, 2024.


This will be a unique opportunity to build bridges with, and hear first-hand from Republican and Democrat Former Members of Congress and gain their insights into the ongoing 2024 Presidential contest.  Additionally, participants will experience the history, culture, and vibrant atmosphere of Austin, and participate in an optional visit to San Antonio, Texas.


Although the program is still being finalized, a few highlights include:
