FMC engages Former Members of Congress who have returned home, or otherwise left Washington, DC, through Regional Meetings that allow Former Members who live throughout the United States to keep contact with their colleagues from nearby. These Regional Meetings allow for Former Members to build ladders of bipartisanship to their community through roundtable discussions, seminars and mini-Congress to Campus opportunities.
UPCOMING REGIONAL MEETING:
St. Louis, MS - 2018
PAST REGIONAL MEETINGS
Orlando, FL- 2018

Each year, FMC invites all Former Members of Congress to return to our nation's Capitol, to join us in making our report to Congress. This report, mandated by our Congressional Charter, is delivered in the well of the United States House of Representatives, and is often received by majority and minority leadership. Then, Former Members are able to attend panels and other discussion and education opportunities, to learn more about the issues critical to our nation. Often, the Annual Meeting has been accompanied by a memorial service for Members of Congress who pass away between Annual Meetings.
Former Members of Congress still have a great deal to offer the leadership of nations outside the United States. With centuries of combined legislative experience, Former Members are frequently requested by academic institutions, businesses and other organizations, as well as by foreign governments, to provide knowledge about politics in the United States, the work being done by Congress, how to deal with groups in the United States, and how our form of government came to be. Former Members have travelled all over the world to spread our message of civility and democracy.
"THE MEMBERS" Annual Golf Tournament
Along with a continual focus on the Congressional Family, giving back to our community is very important to FMC. Each year, FMC works with Former and Current Members of Congress, business groups throughout the National Capital Region, and Wounded Warrior organizations, to host "The Members," a golf tournament held at Army-Navy Country Club in Arlington, Virginia. Wounded servicemembers, Members of Congress and business leaders make up foursomes that make their way around a challenging 18 holes, ending with a celebration of service at a luncheon. Along with a wonderful day of competition, funds raised from The Members goes directly to XXXX, which helps our wounded warriors find their way back to society after they leave the service of our nation.
