On January 16, 2014, Minneapolis Partner Tom Kelly was elected as Chairman of the Board of Directors of the Center of the American Experiment, Minnesota’s premier non-governmental public policy organization. Center of the American Experiment is a nonpartisan, tax-exempt, public policy and educational institution that brings conservative and free market ideas to bear on the hardest problems facing Minnesota and the nation. To accomplish its mission, American Experiment publishes original research, writes commentaries, commissions studies, presents public programs that feature both local and national experts, hosts legislative roundtables, and delivers presentations to students and civic organizations. American Experiment’s efforts address both the big policy issues of the day and the tougher, more personal issues impacting the heart and soul of our culture.
