KCADC Annual Meeting

KCADC’s Annual Meeting celebration is the most prominent and well-attended business event in the Kansas City metropolitan area – drawing more than 1,700 of KC’s top corporate and civic influencers.

Doris Kearns Goodwin, best-selling author, Pulitzer Prize winner and “America’s Historian-in-Chief” is this year’s featured speaker. Doris Kearns Goodwin’s interest in leadership began more than half century ago as a teacher at Harvard. One of her first experiences was working for LBJ in the White House and later assisting him on his memoirs led to Lyndon Johnson and the American Dream.

Now, in her new book, Leadership in Turbulent Times, Doris combines her signature storytelling with essential lessons from four of our nation’s presidents—Abraham Lincoln, Theodore Roosevelt, Franklin D. Roosevelt and Lyndon B. Johnson—and will share with us how we can learn to navigate and grew through adversity.
 

When:
from Friday, November 09, 2018 11:00 AM

Luncheon: The Negro Baseball League - Preserving its history

We will welcome guest speaker Bob Kendrick, President of the NLBM to our luncheon.  Since returning to the NLBM in 2011, Bob has orchestrated a more than $2 million turnaround that has helped the NLBM regain its vitality and financial stability.  

Don't miss the opportunity to gain a fascinating insight into the history of the Negro Baseball League and how it changed the game of baseball.  Learn about the humble beginnings of the museum and its growth in popularity, to being named USA Today's Reader Choice #2 Best Sports Attraction in North America.  Bob will also share stories of some of the legendary players in the Negro Leagues and how their passion changed the sport forever.
