(INDIANAPOLIS) — Arthur C. Brooks, president and CEO of the American Enterprise Institute, author of nearly a dozen books and columnist for The Washington Post, will be the featured speaker at the Indiana Chamber of Commerce’s Chamber Day Dinner on March 12.
The newly-named Chamber Day Dinner (formerly the Legislative Dinner), will be held at the Indiana Roof Ballroom and annually draws a crowd of more than 700 policy, business and community leaders. Ice Miller LLP is the presenting sponsor.
Brooks has led the American Enterprise Institute, a public policy and research institute, since 2009. He’ll be taking a new role this summer to join the Harvard Kennedy School and focus on the area of public leadership.
Author of titles such as The Conservative Heart, Social Entrepreneurship and The Road to Freedom: How to Win the Fight for Free Enterprise, Brooks’ newest title, Love Your Enemies, will be released on March 12 – the same day as the Chamber Day Dinner. Each attendee will receive a complimentary copy of the new book at the event.
Brooks is also featured on the Indiana Chamber’s podcast, the EchoChamber, in which he discusses the potential change in extreme rule, the challenges brought forth by social media, his thoughts on Indiana and the Midwest, and why his overall view is “hopeful” (but not “optimistic”).
