CLLA to Welcome Former Chicago Mayor Richard M. Daley as 2013 Keynote Speaker

Chicago - The Commercial Law League of America is pleased to announce that former Chicago Mayor Richard M. Daley will present the 2013 CLLA Chicago/Spring Convention keynote presentation.

A former Cook County state's attorney and state senator, Daley served as Chicago's longest-running mayor from 1989 to 2011. He currently holds an of counsel position at international law firm Katten Muchin Rosenman LLP, is a director at The Coca Cola Company and chairs JP Morgan Chase's Global Cities Initiative. Daley's CLLA Chicago/Spring meeting keynote speech, "City CEO: Rising to Challenges and Change," will identify unique advantages that the current global economy presents.

The CLLA's annual Chicago meeting will be held from April 11‐13, 2013, at the Westin Michigan Avenue, 909 N. Michigan Ave.

The dynamic three‐day event provides daily career development opportunities for legal, credit, bankruptcy, collections and finance industry professionals-including several exciting events debuting this year, such as a networking event for women in the collections industry and litigation‐based public speaking bootcamp.

Attendees will also be able to take advantage of courses-including 16+ hours of continuing legal education credit-on topics like construction law; Telephone Consumer Protection Act compliance; and handling commercial transactions and collections work under the expansion of same‐sex marriage and civil unions.

"From the keynote by former Mayor Daley, who is considered a top urban executive, to world‐class education and networking opportunities, the CLLA annual Chicago meeting will live up to its billing as the road to reinvention," said Anthony Hilvers, executive vice president of the CLLA.
