WASHINGTON CONFERENCE GENERAL SESSION SPEAKERS


Senator Jeff Flake  (AZ)

Tuesday Opening Breakfast General Session During this time of heightened political uncertainty in Washington, DC, Senator Jeff Flake (AZ) has become an outspoken voice on the need for compromise, civility, and commitment to conservative values in our national government.

The senator will play a vital role in bridging the partisan divide over immigration policy as a member of the Judiciary Committee, where he also serves as the chairman of the Subcommittee on Privacy, Technology and the Law. In addition, he is Chairman of the Subcommittee on Water and Power for the Energy and Natural Resources Committee. He is also on the Foreign Relations Committee, and is Chairman of Subcommittee on African Affairs.

Prior to his election to the U.S. Senate, he served in the U.S. House of Representatives from 2001-2013 representing the East Valley.

Senator Flake is a fifth-generation Arizonan who was raised on a cattle ranch in Snowflake, AZ.

Sean Spicer, Former White House Press Secretary 

Tuesday United FreshPAC Reception & Dinner  (Separately Ticketed Event)

Everybody knows Sean Spicer. At least, polls show, they know his name and his trademark style behind the White House podium. But before the former White House Press Secretary made his mark as one of the most recognized staffers in the Trump administration, he built a decades-long career in Republican politics, witnessing and shaping the inner workings of Washington, DC, from every vantage point–as a House of Representatives communicator, Assistant U.S. Trade Representative, Republican National Committee chief strategist, top advisor to presidential campaigns, and, of course, White House spokesman. Few in Washington are as well-equipped as Sean to pull back the curtain and dissect what’s really happening in the nation’s capital.

Bob Woodward,
Two-time Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist, associate editor of the Washington Post

Wednesday General Session Breakfast This journalistic icon who gained international attention when he and Carl Bernstein broke the deeply disturbing news of the Watergate scandal will address the United Fresh Washington Conference audience on Wednesday, September 20 in Washington, D.C.

Bob Woodward is currently associate editor for The Washington Post where he’s worked since 1971. He has won nearly every American journalism award, and the Post won the 1973 Pulitzer Prize for his work with Carl Bernstein on the Watergate scandal. In addition, Woodward was the main reporter for the Post’s articles on the aftermath of the September 11 terrorist attacks that won the National Affairs Pulitzer Prize in 2002. Woodward won the Gerald R. Ford Prize for Distinguished Reporting on the Presidency in 2003.

The Weekly Standard called Woodward “the best pure reporter of his generation, perhaps ever.” In 2003, Al Hunt of The Wall Street Journal called Woodward “the most celebrated journalist of our age.” In listing the all-time 100 best non-fiction books, Time magazine has called All the President’s Men, by Bernstein and Woodward, “Perhaps the most influential piece of journalism in history.”

Woodward has co-authored or authored twelve #1 national best-selling non-fiction books.
