What It's about

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. The Annual Meeting features both business and elected leaders, convening to recognize this year’s accomplishments and looking forward to the goals and opportunities ahead.

Former deputy chairman of the Federal Reserve Board, Alan Blinder, will be the Annual Meeting featured speaker. Mr. Blinder is the Gordon S. Rentschler Memorial Professor of Economics and Public Affairs at Princeton University and the vice chairman of the Promontory Interfinancial Network. He served as the vice chairman of the Federal Reserve’s Board of Governors from 1994 to 1996 and was a member of President Clinton’s Council of Economic Advisers. He writes a regular monthly op-ed column for The Wall Street Journal and appears frequently on PBS, CNBC, CNN, Bloomberg TV, and elsewhere.

His new book, After the Music Stopped: The Financial Crisis, the Response, and the Work Ahead, is a highly-acclaimed account of the 2008 financial crisis, why it happened, how we reacted and what it now means for the future.
