St. Louis, MO: The Eagle Forum Education & Legal Defense Fund along with Phyllis Schlafly's Eagle Trust Fund are making final preparations to host Eagle Council XLVI here in St. Louis, Missouri. This will be the 46th Annual Leadership Conference of Phyllis Schlafly's original design. Conservatives from across the country will gather to network, educate themselves, and hear from top speakers, panelists, and workshop leaders from all fields of policy, culture, and politics.
"Phyllis Schlafly was a visionary," said Ed Martin, president of Eagle Forum Education & Legal Defense Fund. "Over the years, she developed a brilliant and unique conference format that excited, energized, and refreshed attendees to go back out and keep up the fight! This conference is the best opportunity for aspiring involved citizens to learn what's going on and be not just hearers but doers!
"We are particularly proud to welcome key leadership of Donald J. Trump, including Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski and senior communications adviser Boris Epshteyn."
