KCADC’s Annual Meeting celebration is the most prominent and well-attended business event in the Kansas City metropolitan area – drawing more than 1,700 of KC’s top corporate and civic influencers.

“Leading for All” will celebrate the many ways we work with our partners and leaders in the community to improve the lives of those living and working in One KC. Join us as we recognize this broad regional effort to solidify KC as the best place to grow.

Doris Kearns Goodwin
, best-selling author, Pulitzer Prize winner and “America’s Historian-in-Chief” is this year’s featured speaker. Doris Kearns Goodwin’s interest in leadership began more than half century ago as a teacher at Harvard. One of her first experiences was working for LBJ in the White House and later assisting him on his memoirs led to Lyndon Johnson and the American Dream.

Now, in her new book, Leadership in Turbulent Times, Doris combines her signature storytelling with essential lessons from four of our nation’s presidents—Abraham Lincoln, Theodore Roosevelt, Franklin D. Roosevelt and Lyndon B. Johnson—and will share with us how we can learn to navigate and grow through adversity.
