Thank you for attending the North Texas Commission’s 45th anniversary presented by Bell Helicopter Textron Inc., with keynote speaker, Dana Perino.

Perino, the first female Republican White House Press Secretary under President George W. Bush, gave a compelling speech on the importance of messaging through the media and leading by example. As a political commentator on Fox’s The Five, Perino left the audience with five things to look for in the upcoming presidential election.

To close out the program, the nearly sold-out audience was specially introduced to the incoming North Texas Commission President and CEO, James Spaniolo. Exciting the audience, Spaniolo spoke of his love for North Texas, his commitment to fulfill the mission of the North Texas Commission and his excitement to build bridges for the future of the organization.
