Forum Club of the Palm Beaches added an event.

As U.S. Secretary of the Department of Labor, Alexander Acosta, plays a significant role in America’s success. The policies his Agency sets forth not only impact our workforce and job creators, but also have far-reaching impacts on the economy, employment, health care, retirement security and more.

On Monday, February 5, Secretary Acosta will join the Forum Club of the Palm Beaches for an event at the Kravis Center for the Performing Arts – Cohen Pavilion to discuss the Administration’s efforts to create a more business-friendly environment and what impacts their agenda will have on areas like ours.

The son of Cuban refugees, Secretary Acosta is a native of Miami and first-generation college graduate, having earned his undergraduate and law degrees from Harvard University.

Following law school, he worked as a law clerk for Justice Samuel A. Alito, Jr., at the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit. He then worked at the law firm of Kirkland & Ellis and went on to teach at George Mason University’s Antonin Scalia School of Law.

Secretary Acosta has served in three presidentially appointed, Senate-confirmed positions. In 2002, he was appointed to serve as a member of the National Labor Relations Board, where he participated in or authored more than 125 opinions. In 2003, he was appointed Assistant Attorney General for the Civil Rights Division of the U.S. Department of Justice, and from 2005 to 2009 he served as the U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of Florida.

He also recently served as the dean of the FIU College of Law.

Secretary Acosta has twice been named one of the nation’s 50 most influential Hispanics by Hispanic Business magazine. He was also named to the list of 100 most influential individuals in business ethics in 2008.

He and his wife, Jan, enjoy spending time together as a family, raising their two daughters.

Doors open at 11:15 a.m. Program begins at noon.
