The Center for Individual Freedoms Executive Director, Eric Schippers, will introduce Health and Human Services Secretary Tommy Thompson at CPAC 2002. Secretary Thompson is scheduled to deliver a speech to the conference at 1:05 pm on Thursday, January 31, the opening day of this years event.
"It is a great honor to introduce such a distinguished member of President Bushs Cabinet," said Schippers. "The president made a great choice in appointing Governor Thompson to the HHS post. As governor, he was a pioneer of innovative programs that provide his state with school choice for parents and welfare-to-work for the unemployed."
The Center has joined over 70 of the nations leading policy organizations, think tanks and advocacy groups in co-sponsoring the 29th annual CPAC, and will have a booth in the conferences Exhibitors Hall. Staff will be on hand to discuss the Center and its activities.
