The largest gathering of conservatives each summer is held in Denver, Colorado. July 12 and 13 will be the 10th annual event at the Colorado Convention Center with an opportunity to hear from the nation’s top conservative leaders, attend informative workshops, visit the massive exhibit hall and network with thousands of fellow conservatives.. The 2019 theme is “Defending Religious Freedom and America’s First Amendment.”
A highlight of the Centennial Institute-sponsored gathering is the presentation of the William L. Armstrong Award, given in honor of the founder of the Western Conservative Summit, Bill Armstrong. He was a follower of Christ, husband, father, grandfather, senator, college president (Colorado Christian University), businessman and friend to all. The Centennial Institute salutes the farseeing leader of today, unselfish, undaunted, who urges us toward the high peaks of freedom. Robert P. George will receive the award this year. He is the McCormick Professor of Jurisprudence and Director of the James Madison Program in American Ideals and Institutions at Princeton University. Professor George has served as Chairman of the U.S. Commission on International Religious Freedom. He also served on the President’s Council on Bioethics, as presidential appointee to the United States Commission on Civil Rights and as the U.S. member of UNESCO’s World Commission on the Ethics of Science and Technology. He is a former Judicial Fellow at the Supreme Court of the United States where he received the Justice Tom C. Clark Award.
