Top 5 Reasons to Attend the ARCS Foundation Annual Members Conference

Reason #1:  Celebrate 60 years of ARCS Foundation

Since its founding in 1958, ARCS has never wavered from its mission to advance science in America.  Help us celebrate our 60th anniversary in Washington, D.C., on April 25-28 with accommodations at the historic Willard Intercontinental Hotel and dinner at the United States Supreme Court building.

Reason #2:  Dynamic speakers, panelists, and keynotes

From keynote speaker Deborah L. Wince-Smith, President & CEO of the Council on Competitiveness, talking about the importance of innovation to our nation’s global competitiveness to a full roster of panelists and speakers, hear from individuals working to advance the mission of ARCS Foundation.

Reason #3:  Dinner at the Supreme Court – hear first-hand from one of the nation’s nine Supreme Court Justices 

The odds are that you will never argue a case before the United States Supreme Court. That is an honor and an experience reserved for just a handful of the top attorneys in the world each year. But as part of the upcoming ARCS Foundation conference in Washington, D.C., attendees will have an opportunity to dine there and hear first-hand from one of the nation’s nine Supreme Court Justices.

Reason #4:  Connect with members and scholars

Exclusive networking breakfasts and opportunities to talk directly with ARCS Scholars will connect you with other engaged ARCS Foundation advocates and leaders in our field. 

Reason #5:  Exclusive tours – access to exclusive tours at prestigious museums led by friends of ARCS Foundation

From tours at the National Museum of American History to National Geographic Museum, from the National Gallery of Art to the National Air and Space Museum and International Spy Museum, take advantage of exclusive tours and see all Washington, D.C., has to offer.
