Wheeler Center Events & Conferences

Holding true to Senator Burton K. Wheeler’s belief that the discussion of public policy is the cornerstone of democracy, The Wheeler Center preserves this conversation by hosting and promoting local events.

We invite you to browse our events and upcoming conferences and consider becoming a part of this ongoing discourse.
Senator Wheeler knew full well that good policy doesn't come from one person. Doing what's right for Montana-and America-comes from sharing ideas and information, hearing from all sides, and working together.
Montana Senior Senator Jon Tester
