ISEA’s Executive Summit is the association’s premier executive conference, bringing senior management together with industry and policy leaders, to join in thought-provoking discussions about driving industry-wide growth through effective policies. The 2018 Executive Summit program is designed to provide top-level policy briefings and a behind the scenes understanding of the policy battles that impact your organizations.
This year, we’re honored to present political analyst, Amy Walter, national editor of the Cook Political Report, and Kenneth Kies, former Chief of Staff of the Congressional Joint Committee on Taxation, where he was responsible for developing and analyzing all tax legislation for the House Ways and Means Committee, the Senate Finance Committee, and other committees of the Congress.

She is also a regular panelist on NBC’s Meet the Press, Fox News’ Special Report with Bret Baier, CBS’ Face the Nation, and provides political analysis for the PBS NewsHour.
