What to expect at the 2020 Virtual New Members Orientation

Please join The Heritage Foundation for our nationally recognized New Members Orientation.  As a newly elected Member of the United States Congess, you will be asked to take the Oath of Office and uphold the tenets of the Constitution.  This best-in-class program provides both the process and policy resources required to successfully undertake the momentous responsibility of serving in the United State Congress. 

Come and engage with our issue experts, hear from movement leaders, and meet other members who want an America where freedom, opportunity, prosperity, and civil society flourish. Since we can't hold in-person events right now, we've decided to bring New Members Orientation to you virtually--just one week after the election. We look forward to being able to host an in-person orientation in January 2021!
