2014 NPS Update: D.C. Power Player to be Keynote at Opening General Session

The 2014 National Policy Seminar will feature Catherine “Kiki” McLean as the keynote speaker during the Opening General Session on Monday, March 3, from 10:30 a.m.-noon. Kiki is a co-founder of No Labels, a nonpartisan organization that supports “a growing citizens’ movement of Democrats, Republicans and independents dedicated to promoting a new politics of problem solving.”  A veteran Washington insider and experienced political consultant, Kiki previously worked as a senior advisor for Senator Hillary Clinton’s 2008 presidential campaign, and served as the national press secretary and spokesperson to Vice President Al Gore’s presidential campaign in 2000. Additionally, she was the communications director for the Democratic National Committee and is a frequent guest on cable news programs.  

Throughout her career, Kiki has distinguished herself as a communications expert in the field of politics and public policy.  Her insights will provide CTE advocates with an insider’s view of the Washington political landscape, helping us to further our CTE policy goals on Capitol Hill. ACTE is proud to welcome Kiki McLean to NPS 2014!  Register today!
