Virus-Free Forums


Join us Virtually!

Each year, National Review Institute hosts dozens of events across the country to provide opportunities for our supporters and friends to engage with NR‘s top talent. Due to the circumstances, we’ve had to postpone all upcoming events, but want to ensure that our supporters continue to have access to our content—the critical work put forth by NRI fellows and leading conservative thinkers. This is even more important in these challenging times!

Below you will find a variety of options to engage with us in a virus-free way. We hope you will join us virtually!

2020 Virtual Seminars

Unfortunately, due to the Covid-19 pandemic, National Review Institute will no longer host the  Regional Seminar series scheduled for Newport Beach (3/24), San Francisco (3/25), Chicago (4/2), Dallas (4/14), Houston (4/15), New York (5/11), and Philadelphia (5/12). We regret that we will not be able to bring this program to you at this time.

However, we do have virus-free portions of our seminars to share with you. So you don’t miss out, two panel discussions from our program were recorded.  The Perennial Fight Against Socialism (featuring John O’Sullivan and Madeleine Kearns) and The Importance of Culture (featuring Kevin D. Williamson and Jay Nordlinger) are available for you to listen to HERE. We hope that this special, one-time podcast version of our program will allow our friends and supporters from across the country to hear from our fellows on these important topics as we had intended.

1955 Society Conference Calls

Each month, National Review Institute hosts a 1955 Society conference call to provide our members across the country with a special opportunity to engage with NR‘s top talent.

Due to today’s challenging circumstances, we’ve had to postpone many events across the country. But we are as committed as ever to bringing you important content from today’s leading conservative thinkers.

Over the next several weeks, we will be hosting additional conference calls and invite supporters at the $250+ levels to join us. These calls are a virus-free way to hear from NR writers and editors as they discuss the latest developments in the coronavirus pandemic and break down the economic and political consequences of the crisis. We’ll also, as always, be featuring NRI fellows on their recent articles and big-picture ideas.
