Economic Club of Southwestern Michigan Speaker Series Announces Change in Speaker Lineup

Economic Club of Southwestern Michigan Speaker Series Announces Change in Speaker Lineup

 

Over the years, Lake Michigan College has worked with the talent agency UTA to secure several speakers for The Economic Club of Southwestern Michigan Speaker Series, including this year’s agreements with Bill Nye, Mo Rocca, Henry Winkler, and Lara Logan.

 

Since learning that Lara Logan was dropped by UTA, the College has decided to follow suit and replace Ms. Logan with a new speaker. This decision enables the College to move forward with a new speaker and without distractions from the presentation topic and the overarching purpose of the Speaker Series.

 

Information will be released in the coming days regarding a new speaker who will be presenting on the same scheduled date and time, Tuesday, May 10, 2022.
