About the Event
Politic Plus in conjunction with the Northern Ireland Assembly has been working in partnership with the American Council of Young Political Leaders (ACYPL), since 2012, to develop an international exchange programme, allowing emerging leaders between the ages of 25 and 40 years to experience first-hand the political and cultural dynamics of each other’s jurisdiction. U.S. participants are nominated by members of Congress, governors, political party leaders and ACYPL alumni.
Following the success of the 2012 and 2014 programmes in Northern Ireland, ACYPL will send a further delegation from the United States, to arrive in Belfast on Saturday 10 September 2016 and depart on Saturday 17 September 2016. The programme of meetings organised will introduce the U.S. participants to elected representatives, officials, policy leaders, political activists and election experts as well as business, media and community leaders through a variety of meetings, discussions, and social and cultural interactions.
