The American Bakers Association (ABA) has announced that former speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives John Boehner will serve as the American Bakers Political Action Committee (PAC) Dinner keynote speaker during the 2019 ABA Convention.
“We are delighted to offer PAC supporters exclusive access to a high-profile leader of American politics during this important industry event. Speaker Boehner holds a unique perspective and we look forward to hearing his take on the current political climate, and how we can come together to promote policies that can grow the baking industry,” American Bakers PAC Chairman Steve Avera, Flowers Foods, explained.
ABA president and CEO Robb MacKie said that speaker Boehner’s deep knowledge of how to effectively lead change would inspire those who attend this year’s PAC events. “Mr. Boehner led several significant initiatives during his time in office, all with the goal of creating a more balanced Federal budget and seeking better solutions for the challenges facing American families. We can learn how he managed to align a Party in transition – and how we can apply those tactics today,” MacKie added.
Speaker Boehner got involved in state and local government after seeing firsthand how high taxes and red tape impact entrepreneurs. A former small businessman, John Boehner served as Speaker of the United States House of Representatives for nearly five years (January 2011-October 2015), during which he led the drive for a smaller, less costly, and more accountable federal government.
The American Bakers PAC Dinner and Townhall are ticketed events to be held on Monday, April 8, 2019, during the ABA Convention.
