Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi to Give Convention Keynote!

We couldn’t be more excited to announce that our Annual Convention keynote on Saturday, June 17 will be House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi.

The 2010 Congressional Arts Leadership Awardee, Leader Pelosi has been an outspoken advocate for the arts in San Francisco and around the country, and she will share her thoughts on the role of the arts in today’s political climate! Her leadership helped secure funding to save nonprofit arts jobs in 2009 and she has advanced cultural policy throughout her career.

Leader Pelosi will be joined by Americans for the Arts President and CEO Robert Lynch for a wide-ranging conversation and Q&A. Don’t miss this powerful and inspiring talk!

Leader Pelosi will appear unless federal issues or House schedules shift and require her presence in Washington, DC.
