We are delighted to announce that Lois Romano (a 2008 Fellow at the Institute of Politics) has joined the IOP for the summer and fall semester to help staff and students develop a long-term vision and strategy, as well as timely programming. Lois has had a distinguished career as a political journalist at The Washington Post, Newsweek and POLITICO. Most recently, she helped build both POLITICO and The Washington Post's conference businesses. Her contacts in politics, journalism and business are extensive.
Lois has been an active alum of the IOP and a career mentor to our students. She has been an invaluable sounding board for the IOP staff over the years and has moderated many events. She made a significant contribution to the success of the 2016 Campaign Managers and New Members of Congress Conferences, working with students and staff to ensure that high-profile journalists participated and helping to devise creative programming to maximize the quality of the event. We know Lois will bring her creative skills to benefit the IOP!
