In June, the Alexander Hamilton Society (AHS) held its annual Student Leadership Conference in Washington, D.C., in order to train and inspire the next generation of foreign-policy scholars.  The two-day conference gives college students an opportunity to meet leading experts in the field, develop peer networks, and learn how to run successful campus AHS chapters dedicated to bringing fruitful and rigorous foreign-policy debates to campuses across the country.

The yearly conference includes sessions on foreign policy, chapter organization, and professional development.  Students see a model debate between faculty and listen to active professionals discuss they ways in which they have successfully pursued their policy interests in a variety of disciplinary fields. This year’s conference reception, entitled “The New World Order,” featured a conversation between Bruce Jones of the Brookings Institution and Elliott Abrams from the Council on Foreign Relations.  In addition, the Ohio State University's AHS Chapter received recognition as the 2015-2016 Chapter of the Year, and Henry Nau of George Washington University was named the 2015-2016 AHS Faculty Advisor of the Year.

AHS is an independent, non-partisan, not-for-profit membership organization dedicated to promoting constructive debate on basic principles and contemporary issues in foreign, economic, and national-security policy.  It seeks to build a national network of outstanding students, faculty, and professionals; sponsor debates at colleges and universities, as well as in major cities; and provide a variety of compelling opportunities for its members to flourish intellectually and professionally.

The Lynde and Harry Bradley Foundation in Milwaukee supports AHS.
