James Carville to speak at Rotary on
Tuesday, November 7, 2017
On Tuesday, November 7, 2017 nationally known political commentator and media personality, James Carville will address our Club. Carville’s address to the Rotary Club will focus on William Tecumseh Sherman, the first president of LSU, as well as other topics of interest. This is another of our 100th Anniversary Programs and we expect a large attendance.
Carville gained national attention for his work as senior political advisor on the successful presidential campaign of then Arkansas governor, Bill Clinton. After his work with the Clinton campaign he turned to international consulting and ran campaigns in more than 23 countries. Most recently, Carville announced that he will join the faculty of LSU's Manship School of Mass Communication after nine years of teaching at Tulane University. Carville is a Louisiana native who is an LSU and LSU Law Center graduate and is passionate about his alma mater.
Only Rotarians and guests of Rotarians will attend. We are not opening this program to the general public.
To properly plan, we MUST KNOW IN ADVANCE if you plan to attend and how many guests you will invite. The meal cost for each guest is $20 and will be billed to your next Rotary invoice unless you specifically cancel by October 31st.
This program is a real coup for our Club. Please send your RSVP (whether or not you will attend and how many guests you will be bringing with you) as soon as possible to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Many thanks to Rotarians Jacques Roy and Mike Tudor and Lamar White for making this program possible.
