The 14th Annual Western Conservative Summit, one of the largest annual gatherings of conservatives outside of Washington, D.C., was held in Denver on June 9-10. AMAC Action had a booth. The aim of the event is “to educate Americans on the key issues facing the West and our nation, equipping individuals to stand for faith, family, and freedom and training up the next generation of conservatives.”


This year’s theme was “Western Strong”, selected to highlight the importance of the great Western tradition – from the foundational principles of Western civilization to the rugged individualism that characterizes the American West. 


AMAC Action President Bob Carlstrom was a keynote speaker right along with think tank policy analysts, state and federal officeholders, and 2024 GOP presidential candidate Larry Elder. Other speakers included Seth Dillon, CEO of The Babylon Bee, and new to the conservative movement rock star Riley Gaines, the NCAA swimmer on a crusade to save women’s sports and the privacy of the female locker room.


AMAC Action staff attendees in addition to Bob were Andy Mangione, Jennifer Bengtson, and Jeff Szymanski. The four conducted a panel discussion each day on Citizen Advocacy. AMAC Action advocates attending included Russ Cotton, Liz Veeder, and Steve Brown.
