Bill Clinton and Larry Hogan to Speak at Kumpuris Lecture Series

Former President Bill Clinton and Maryland Governor Larry Hogan are taking the Clinton Presidential Center stage in the Great Hall on Sunday, June 25, for a conversation on civility, the power of inclusive leadership and the keys to bridging America’s political divisions.

The two former officeholders will be in Little Rock as part of The Frank & Kula Kumpuris Distinguished Lecture Series presented by the Clinton Foundation and Clinton School of Public Service. Clinton Foundation Executive Director Stephanie Streett will moderate the conversation where past guests such as Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, U.K. Prime Minister Tony Blair and Nobel Peace Laureate Leymah Gbowee also spoke.

Governor Hogan, a Republican, served two terms starting in 2015. He left office with the highest approval rating of any governor in Maryland history and one of the highest of any governor in the nation. The Hogan administration marked the beginning of a new era in Annapolis – one it describes as inclusive, bipartisan, efficient and always puts the needs of Maryland families and businesses first.

President Clinton served two terms as the 42nd president beginning in 1993. During his tenure, America enjoyed an era of peace and prosperity, with low unemployment rates, low inflation, high home ownership, declining crime rates and a budget surplus. The Clinton administration appointed a number of women and minorities to top government posts including the first female U.S. attorney general Janet Reno and the first female U.S. Secretary of State Madeleine Albright.

Registration is required to view the program both in-person and virtually. While the lecture series event is currently at capacity, you can still join the in-person waitlist here. The conversation begins at 6 p.m. on Sunday, June 25.

Update: Due to high demand, this event has been moved to the Wally Allen Ballroom at the Statehouse Convention Center.
