Welcome and Introductions (10:00 a.m. - 10:05 a.m.)

I.    THE MIDTERM ELECTIONS & THE NEW POLITICAL REALITY (10:05 a.m. - 10:45 a.m.)
The elections will take place just over a week before the meeting. What do the results mean for the advertising and marketing industry? Will there be movement in the new Congress towards tax reform, and will advertising be in the crosshairs? Will there be major privacy or data security legislation? What about other longstanding issues, such as on advertising to children and patent trolls? Dan Jaffe, the head of ANA's Washington, D.C. office will provide his view on what's coming next.
