The Council for National Policy (CNP), is an umbrella organization and networking group for social conservative activists in the United States. The New York Times has described it as a "little-known group of a few hundred of the most powerful conservatives in the country," who meet three times yearly behind closed doors at undisclosed locations for a confidential conference. It was founded in 1981 by Tim LaHaye as a forum for conservative Christians seeking to strengthen the political right in the United States.


Professor Edwin J. Feulner served on the Council for National Policy (CNP) Board of Governors in 1982 and 1996 and on the CNP Executive Committee in 1988 and 1994.[1]
