Sponsorship opportunities are available!


For thirteen years, the Texas Public Policy Foundation’s Policy Orientation has been one of the nation’s top policy conferences, selling out each year while bringing together lawmakers, policy experts, and engaged citizens from across the political spectrum to discuss critical issues facing the Lone Star State and America. Last year’s Policy Orientation attracted approximately 1,100 attendees including 100 state legislators and hundreds of legislative staff from both sides of the aisle.

This year’s program includes more than 25 panel discussions and debates on the major issues affecting Texas’ future.  The program will be updated with additional events and speakers in the coming weeks.

The non-media registration fee for Policy Orientation is $385 and includes the opening lunch on Wednesday, the keynote breakfast and luncheon on Thursday and Friday as well as all panels.  Members of the public and media who wish to attend may register and view the agenda below.
