Washington, DC – The Partnership for a Secure America (PSA) welcomes 29 Hill staff members into PSA’s Summer 2012 Congressional Partnership Program schedule.  Currently in its seventh session, the program brings together Republican and Democratic staff to develop the skills and relationships required to advance bipartisanship on national security and foreign policy issues.


Through policy seminars and networking activities with top leaders in these fields, this unique program aims to equip the next generation of foreign policy and security experts to respect differences, build common ground and achieve US national interests.


The Summer 2012 schedule will include opportunities for participants to meet with members of PSA's Advisory Board, current Administration officials, and other key policy experts. Previous sessions have met with policy leaders such as Ambassador Tom Pickering, Senator Chuck Hagel (R-NE), and Michelle Flournoy, former Under Secretary of Defense for Policy.


PSA is a nonprofit founded by former U.S. Representative Lee Hamilton (D-IN) and U.S. Senator Warren Rudman (R-NH) to advance bipartisanship on today’s critical national security and foreign policy challenges. Leveraging the leadership of its distinguished Advisory Board, PSA has unique credibility and access to forge common ground and fashion thoughtful, fact-based policy that promotes America’s national interests.
