Hillary Rodham Clinton to Close Out 2013 NACS Show
ALEXANDRIA, Va. -- Hillary Rodham Clinton will bring her political star power to this year's NACS Show.
NACS, the Association for Convenience & Fuel Retailing, announced that the former Secretary of State, senator, presidential candidate and First Lady will speak during the show's closing general session on Oct. 15, the final day of the four-day convention, which will be held at the Georgia World Congress Center in Atlanta.
"Secretary Clinton is one of the most recognized and significant leaders in the world today. She has played an integral role in shaping our collective future, both within the United States and on the world stage," said NACS Vice Chairman of Convention Pat Lewis. "Her presentation continues our long-standing tradition of having the world's top leaders share their insights and insiders' perspective at the NACS Show."
NACS began releasing speaker and events information last week. Business leader, motivational speaker and best-selling author Chip Conley will serve as the opening general session speaker on Oct. 12. He will share insights from his book, "Peak: How Great Companies Get Their Mojo from Maslow," and advise attendees on how they can motivate employees, customers and investors through peak experiences that address their higher, unspoken needs.
