He is the first former president to address the media marketers’ conference to be held in New York June 12-14
Promax/BDA announced today that former President Bill Clinton will be the keynote speaker for the organization’s 52nd annual conference June 12-14 in New York.
â€œWe are pleased and honored by the opportunity to host President Bill Clinton as our keynote speaker this year,”Â said Promax/BDA Chairman Michael Benson in making the announcement. â€œOur membership will certainly benefit from President Clinton’s experience and wisdom as a prominent world leader and respected statesman as well as from his efforts inspiring humanitarianism around the globe,”Â Benson added. “As an organization dedicated to furthering the roles of our members as the world’s foremost television marketers, what better example to provide to them than this global communicator whose vision and accomplishments, both during his presidency and beyond, have touched billions.”
William Jefferson Clinton served as the 42nd President of the United States from 1993 to 2001. As the first Democratic president to win a second term since Franklin D. Roosevelt, Clinton’s administration delivered to the U.S. its lowest unemployment rate in modern times, the lowest inflation in 30 years, the highest home ownership in the country’s history and the longest economic expansion in the history of the United States.
Since leaving public office, Clinton has devoted himself to his William J. Clinton Foundation, which works to solve some of our most pressing problems, including childhood obesity in the United States, climate change, global poverty and HIV/AIDS around the world. A graduate of Georgetown University who, in 1968, won a Rhodes scholarship to Oxford University, Clinton received a law degree from Yale University in 1973. Entering politics in Arkansas, he served nearly 12 years as the 50th and 52nd Governor of Arkansas prior to his election as President of the United States in 1992.
Additional speakers and the full Promax/BDA North American Conference agenda will be announced in the coming weeks. For more details on the Promax/BDA North American Conference, visit the convention Web site.
