Saturday, November 19
8:00 a.m. - 10:00 a.m.
Our Closing General Session will send you home with a focused game plan for NAILBA’s next year, thanks to our incoming Chairman Jim Sorebo, who will share his vision with our audience. We’ll also conduct our Annual Business Meeting, discuss legislative and regulatory challenges and opportunities, and hear from our friends at Life Happens. The Closing General Session and NAILBA 35 will conclude with a keynote by world-renowned journalist Ted Koppel.
During the more than 50 years that Ted Koppel has worked as a professional journalist, he has embodied the term “eyewitness to history.” Serving as anchor and managing editor for Nightline, Koppel became the longest serving news anchor in U.S. broadcast history after 26 years with the show. He has since worked for varied news organizations including the Discovery Network, BBC America, and NBC News. He recently joined CBS News as Senior Contributor to the CBS Sunday Morning Show. He has been honored with numerous awards including 42 Emmys (one for lifetime achievement).
Koppel’s most recent book, the New York Times best seller Lights Out, examines a threat unique to our time and evaluates potential ways for America to prepare for a cyber-catastrophe. His keynote will examine a strong, research-backed case for the tremendous likelihood of a devastating cyberattack on the United States, and explore issues surrounding the responsibility of our government. One of the most urgent, unique threats of our time, Koppel rings the alarm and addresses how shockingly unprepared the nation is to deal with the multitude of consequences that have the potential to arise.
Join us Saturday morning as we close NAILBA 35 with a message that will keep you focused on the future!
