Learn from Some of the Most Distinguished Conservative Thinkers of Our Time, Join NRI’s Burke to Buckley Program!

Interested in learning more about the founding principles of conservatism? The deadline to register for National Review Institute’s virtual Burke to Buckley summer program is this Friday, May 22nd!

The summer course will give all individuals around the nation the opportunity to participate in deep discussions about conservative ideas and is based on the Burke to Buckley program that operates in six cities: Chicago, Dallas, New York, Philadelphia, San Francisco, and Washington, D.C.

For this online version, we suggest a tax-deductible donation of $250, which will count towards your membership and grant you access to our other “Virus-Free Programs.” Participant fees will go towards honorariums for our discussion leaders and will raise important funds for National Review Institute, a non-profit.
