Beauprez gets named to Steamboat Institute board

Bob Beauprez has joined The Steamboat Institute’s board of directors. He is a Colorado native, buffalo rancher, author, former dairyman and member of Congress.

“Benjamin Franklin, the eldest delegate to the 1787 Constitutional Convention, presciently captured both the gift and the challenge awaiting every generation of Americans when he said we had been given ‘A Republic, if you can keep it,’” Beauprez said in a news release. “It is an honor to be associated with an organization dedicated to that worthy purpose — saving this Republic.”

In addition to serving as a U.S. Congressman, Beauprez founded a public policy e-magazine, “A Line of Sight,” and is the author of the book, “A Return to Values: a Conservative Look at His Party.”

“We are honored to add Bob Beauprez to our Steamboat Institute team,” Steamboat Institute Chairman and CEO Jennifer Schubert-Akin said in a news release.

“His broad range of experience and his commitment to the principles that make America great are critically important as we continue to expand the reach and influence of the Steamboat Institute at the local, regional and national level.”

The Steamboat Institute’s mission is to educate the public on the founding principles of the United States and to inspire people to be actively involved in their implementation.
