Condoleezza Rice, the 66th secretary of state of the United States, has been named keynote speaker of the Work Truck Show 2014. According to a press release, her address is part of the President’s Breakfast & NTEA Annual Meeting on March 6.
The Work Truck Show 2014 is held March 5–7, 2014, at the Indiana Convention Center in Indianapolis. Educational programming, including the Green Truck Summit, begins March 4. The Work Truck Show, North America’s largest work truck event, is produced annually by NTEA, the association for the work truck industry.
Appointed by President George W. Bush in 2005, Rice was the second woman and first African American woman to hold the post of secretary of state. Rice’s speech at show will include insights from both the political arena as well as her educational and managerial career.
“Condoleezza Rice has a diverse leadership background that will inspire our NTEA members and other Work Truck Show attendees,” says Mark Woody, NTEA 2014 convention chairman and president of Palfinger North America. “She follows in the footsteps of several high-profile leaders who have appeared at the President’s Breakfast and NTEA Annual Meeting, including Presidents George H.W. Bush in 2004 and George W. Bush in 2012.”
The Work Truck Show attracts more than 10,000 attendees to explore 500,000 square feet filled with the newest vocational vehicles and equipment, while taking advantage of three full days of educational sessions.
