Fuzz Hogan oversees the Editorial, Events and Communications Department. In that role, he is primarily responsible for how we engage audiences in DC and beyond, supervising the EEC staff, and coordinating the work of each program's communications efforts.

Events engage the most influential people in media and policy through more than 200 live events a year, including the annual conference. Communications drives our efforts to place our experts in media, and engage our core audiences directly, while also supporting the communications needs of the organization. Fuzz is a member of the Leadership Team.
