24th Annual Spring Luncheon Keynote Speaker

It is our extreme pleasure to announce the 24th Annual Spring Luncheon keynote speaker, Dr. Madeleine K. Albright, Secretary of State (1997-2001). We hope you will join us Thursday, May 3, 2018 at The Ritz-Carlton, Chicago for this very special and memorable event as she speaks on Women in Diplomacy.

Dr. Madeleine K. Albright is chair of Albright Stonebridge Group, a global strategy firm, and chair of Albright Capital Management LLC, an investment advisory firm focused on emerging markets. Albright was the 64th Secretary of State of the United States. In 1997, she was named the first female Secretary of State and became, at that time, the highest ranking woman in the history of the U.S. government. On May 29, 2012, President Obama awarded her the U.S. Medal of Freedom - the nation's highest civilian honor - citing the inspiration her life is to all and that her scholarship and insight continue to make the world a better, more peaceful place. Dr. Albright is also the author of five New York Times best-sellers.
