Journalist Mark Halperin to keynote CRN annual meeting
WASHINGTON — The Council for Responsible Nutrition on Tuesday announced that Mark Halperin, New York Times best-selling author and well-known senior political analyst for Time, will return as a featured speaker at The Conference, CRN’s annual symposium for the dietary supplement industry.
“We are delighted to welcome Mark Halperin back to The Conference,” stated Steve Mister, president and CEO of CRN. “Mark Halperin is this generation’s Bob Woodward, a shrewd investigative journalist with an ability to capture the most important moments in our political era. His speech at our 2010 annual conference was one of the highlights, and I know attendees will be looking forward to hearing from him again. He gave us a riveting account of the 2008 presidential election, and I, like so many others, am looking forward to getting his take on what is shaping up to be one of the most interesting political cycles in decades.”
As a featured speaker at The Conference, Halperin will share his insights on the upcoming race for the White House, the 2012 Congressional elections and how any shifts in power may affect the dietary supplement industry over the next few years. The 2008 presidential election was the focus of his popular book "Game Change." He currently is writing a follow-up book on the 2012 election and will share some of his stories from this new book with conference attendees.
The Conference takes place Oct. 3 to 6 at the Montage Laguna Beach in Laguna Beach, Calif.
