CFA Society of Minnesota to Feature Bethany McLean for 2019 Annual Dinner on January 31 in Minneapolis
MINNEAPOLIS–(BUSINESS WIRE)–lt;a href="https://twitter.com/hashtag/BethanyMclean?src=hash" target="_blank"gt;#BethanyMcleanlt;/agt;–CFA Society of Minnesota has announced that they will feature Bethany
McLean, contributing editor at Vanity Fair, as their 2019 Annual Dinner
speaker. The event is scheduled for January 31 at the Hyatt Regency
Prior to role at Vanity Fair, McLean was an editor-at-large at Fortune
magazine, where her 2001 piece, “Is Enron Overpriced?” was one of
the first skeptical articles about Enron. After Enron collapsed into
bankruptcy, she co-authored The Smartest Guys in the Room: The Amazing
Rise and Scandalous Fall of Enron with her Fortune colleague Peter
Elkind. A documentary based on the book was nominated for an Academy
Award in 2006.
McLean is the first female speaker to keynote for this event, and her
trip to Minneapolis will also allow for a student-focused event at the
University of MN the next day. “Creating more opportunities to feature
influential women is a goal of our Changing Perceptions initiative,”
commented board member Sheila Berube, CFA, chair of the event
sub-committee. “We are thrilled to have Bethany here, and to learn about
her experiences and insights asking the hard questions, like she has
done much of her career.”
This annual event is open to members and non-members of the society.
Event medallion sponsors to-date include: (Gold Level) Securian Asset
Management, (Bronze Level) Allianz Investment Management, Berger
Financial Group, Garda Capital Partners and Mairs and Power. For full
