WASHINGTON, DC: Doug Bailey, the veteran campaign manager for Gerald Ford, Bob Dole, Lamar Alexander and a number of other prominent Republicans, has been lined up to talk at the 2001 Public Affairs Institute, the annual weeklong educational program for young public affairs executives, which will take place in San Diego beginning January 7.

'This is an opportunity to stand back and examine broad issues that will affect (executives') organizations and the profession' said Leslie Swift-Rosenzweig, executive director for the Foundation for Public Affairs, which cosponsors the institute with the Public Affairs Council. She went on to stress that unlike similar programs sponsored by the PAC, this is not a training program, but a comprehensive look at global issues affecting public affairs practice.

The institute was created by the PAC 20 years ago to help young practitioners strengthen their knowledge of the field. Each year the institute focuses on five themes; this year's include the Supreme Court and how elections are won. Commensurately, Bailey will be joined in the faculty by other high-profile names in the public affairs arena, including Edward Lazarus, former supreme court clerk and author of Closed chambers: The rise, fall and future of the modern supreme court; Leonard Robinson, a former diplomat, now the professor of African Studies at the University of Massachusetts; and the Honorable Mickey Edwards, a 16-year veteran of Congress who is now a lecturer at the John F. Kennedy School of Government.

Enrollees must be public affairs professionals with at least three years of experience who will commit to attending three successive institutes.
