Bill Clinton at the NRA in Chicago
Bill Clinton, the 42nd president of the United States of America and founder of the William J. Clinton Foundation, will play a distinguished part in the next edition of the NRA Show in Chicago next May 6th. Clinton will address the attendees and will share his experiences as former US president and current leading member of the foundation named after himself.
“President Clinton has a unique perspective on our nation and the World” said Jack Crawford, Convention Chair for NRA Show 2012, and president and CEO of the Ground Round Independent Owners Cooperative, LLC (IOC).
After leaving the White House, President Clinton established the William J. Clinton Foundation with the mission to strengthen the capacity of people in the United States and throughout the world to meet the challenges of global interdependence. Today the Foundation has staff and volunteers around the world working to improve lives through several initiatives.
In the U.S., the Foundation is working to combat the alarming rise in childhood obesity through the ‘Alliance for a Healthier Generation’, and is helping individuals and families succeed and small businesses grow.
NRA Show 2012 will be held at the McCormick Place in Chicago from 5th to 8th May. The event will attract more than 58,000 professionals from over 100 countries, where the most innovative products and services in the market will be exhibited, along with new, transforming ideas, information about the sector trends, and more growing business opportunities than in any other event within the food industry.
The National Restaurant Association, founded in 1919, is the main restaurant industry association in the U.S. – made up of 945,000 restaurants and other businesses related to the food industry –, and employs over 13 million people. The association is working to guide and lead the food industry into a new era of prosperity, increasing the quality of life of those whom it serves.
