Lawrenceville Monthly Meeting
George Birnbaum, partner at Avenue Strategies in D.C.
One of our most popular speakers ever is back!
We are thrilled to announce that Middle East expert George Birnbaum, former Chief of Staff to Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, will be our speaker in Lawrenceville. Mr. Birnbaum, a frequent guest on CNN and Fox News, has worked with leaders throughout Europe and the Middle East – Austria, Bulgaria, Romania, Kosovo, Serbia, Hungary, the Czech Republic and especially Israel – and has worked on dozens of United States Congressional and Senatorial races.
In 2015, US presidential candidate Ben Carson asked Birnbaum to serve as his chief policy advisor for Israel and the Middle East during the 2016 primaries. In addition to those duties, Birnbaum also co-chaired debate preparation for Carson as well as helped develop communications for the campaign.
Most recently, in July 2017, Birnbaum became a partner at Avenue Strategies, a full-service government affairs and political consulting firm based in Washington, D.C.
