On March 27, 2019, FMC will host its 22nd Annual Statesmanship Awards Dinner.
The event will continue FMC’s tradition of recognizing the power of bipartisanship and the dignity of public service. For the 2019 dinner, FMC will focus on “Celebrating and Strengthening Democracy in the 21st Century”. Our first confirmed honoree, Sen. Richard Burr of North Carolina, is being recognized for his work chairing the Intelligence Committee to assist state election officials in safeguarding the integrity of their voting systems and to prevent hostile powers from using social media to interfere in U.S. elections. Specifically, FMC is recognizing Senator Burr’s tremendous leadership, on a bipartisan basis, of theSecure Elections Act. FMC strongly believes that Democrats and Republicans working together for the good of the country results in highly impactful legislation, and the Secure Elections Act is most certainly an example of that.
