Week to Week Political Roundtable and Member Social 4/4/16

We'll start off with a special treat: Before our politics roundtable, political analyst Melissa Caen will give a lively 10-minute explainer on third parties — are the conservative leaders who are talking about a third-party challenge to Trump realistic? Is there still room for a third-party challenge to Clinton? Find out.

We'll explore the biggest, most controversial, and sometimes the surprising political issues with expert commentary by panelists who are smart, are civil, and have a good sense of humor. Join our panelists for informative and engaging commentary on political and other major news, audience discussion of the week’s events, and our live news quiz!

And come early before the program to meet other smart and engaged individuals and discuss the news over snacks and wine at our member social (open to all attendees).
