Please join us on Tuesday, January 14 with our speaker Liz Gilbert, President, 2020 DNC Host Committee. She will be discussing the logistics of the winning bid for and hosting the DNC in Milwaukee this July.
In 2019, Milwaukee made history. For the first time ever, the Democratic National Committee selected a city in Wisconsin to host its national convention, and eyes from across the globe turned to the heartland in anticipation for the big event.
Since then, the Milwaukee 2020 Host Committee – the nonprofit civic organization responsible for organizing, hosting, and funding the 2020 Democratic National Convention – has been working hard to ensure the convention and the entire year leading up to it are a success for the Milwaukee community and state as a whole.
During this program, Liz Gilbert, President of the Host Committee, will give an overview of why Milwaukee was the perfect selection for the convention and how the Host Committee is working to capitalize on the incredible opportunity it presents. She will also discuss what to expect during the convention and how interested individuals and organizations can get involved.
