Since 1889, the Board of Trade has gathered Greater Washington’s business community to advance an agenda that is good for business and the community. Come and join the region’s top business leaders, corporate executives, senior elected officials and many others as we recognize accomplishments and look toward the future.


Thomas L. Friedman is a three-time recipient of the Pulitzer Prize for his work with The New York Times, and the author of six bestselling books.

In Thank You for Being Late, his most ambitious work to date, Thomas L. Friedman shows that we have entered an age of dizzying acceleration--and explains how to live in it. Due to an exponential increase in computing power, climbers atop Mount Everest enjoy excellent cell phone service, and self-driving cars are taking to the roads. A parallel explosion of economic interdependency has created new riches as well as spiraling debt burdens. Meanwhile, Mother Nature is also seeing dramatic change as carbon levels rise and species go extinct, with compounding results.

* Special appreciation to Hooks Book Events for making Thomas Friedman available for this Annual Meeting.
