Central to host Jeff Link '89 at meeting of political scientists

Central College will host the 2014 Annual Meeting of the Iowa Association of Political Scientists Feb. 28–March 1. The meeting will feature a reception, panels and project presentations for registered attendees, plus a keynote with Jeff Link ‘89 that is open to the public.

Link will speak at 1 p.m. March 1 in the Dave and Ardie Sutphen Common Room. His presentation will focus on strategic campaign advertising, drawing on his experience as a media consultant for President Obama’s 2008 presidential campaign. Link is owner of Link Strategies, a Des Moines political consulting firm, and he serves as CEO of Analytics Media Group, a Chicago and New York City-based company that applies data to media buying.

Andrew Green, associate professor of political science at Central College and president-elect of the Iowa Association of Political Scientists, said the annual meeting provides a chance for political scientists, faculty, graduate and undergraduate students from Iowa and around the country to network and present research.

“We have participants coming from as far away as Texas to present. It’s a great opportunity for our colleagues to get feedback on research projects and papers they’re working on,” Green said.

For registration information, contact Green at or (641) 628-5259.
