The Forum Club of the Palm Beaches will present a virtual lunch on Wednesday, April 14, at noon with former Speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives John Boehner. During the program, Speaker Boehner will reflect on his experience in the United States Congress and provide insights into today’s Congressional leadership.

 

Boehner served as the 53rd Speaker of the United States House of Representatives from January 2011 to October 2015. During his tenure, he led the drive for a smaller, less costly and more accountable federal government.

 

Boehner grew up in a large Roman Catholic family in southwestern Ohio. He attended an all-male high school in Cincinnati before earning a degree in business from Xavier University. He then took a job at a plastics company, Nucite Sales, where he eventually became president.

 

In 1984 he was elected to the Ohio House of Representatives and remained in office until his election to the U.S. House of Representatives in 1990. He represented the Eighth Congressional District of Ohio in the U.S. House of Representatives from 1991 to 2015, serving as both House Minority and House Majority Leader prior to being named Speaker of the House.

 

Boehner now serves as Senior Strategic Advisor for Squire Patton Boggs LLP, one of the world’s foremost law and public policy firms.

 

His soon-to-be released book, On the House: A Washington Memoir, is available for purchase on the Forum Club’s website at special pricing thanks to a partnership with the Palm Beach Bookstore.

 

Forum Club virtual lunches will be hosted on the Zoom Webinar platform, but do not require you to have a personal Zoom account. You may watch this virtual lunch from your computer, tablet or smartphone or listen by calling the number provided upon registration. No web cameras or microphones will be needed for you to participate.
