Dana Perino, co-host and political commentator of Fox’s The Five, will be the featured keynote speaker at the 2012 North American Association of Floor Covering Distributors (NAFCD) and North American Building Material Distribution Association (NBMDA) annual convention, this November 13-15, in Orlando, Fla.

In her keynote, titled, “The Political Realities – Right Now,” Perino will bring a unique viewpoint from her time as White House press secretary, providing the insight into the current political climate that will give attendees a clear picture of the changes to come.

“With the turmoil between the current administration and Congress, and the coming election, it is critical that we are able to understand what this all means for businesses,” says Kevin Gammonley, NBMDA executive vice president. “Dana Perino will be able to draw on her experience in the White House Situation Room and her time as press secretary, to help attendees at the annual convention de-code the spin, the realities and appreciate the ways in which the economy is affected by today’s politics.”

Perino is currently a Fox News contributor and co-host of The Five, the channel’s daily political news show. She is also the president of the strategic communications firm, Dana Perino and Company; the editorial director of Crown Forum, the conservative imprint of Crown Publishing Group; and a frequent public speaker on how politics affect people outside the beltway. President Obama also nominated her to the Broadcasting Board of Governors in 2009.

“We are excited to have a speaker who is so in tune with what is happening day-to-day in Washington,” says Michelle Miller, NAFCD executive vice president. “Attendees can expect to come away with an idea of how national government and policy issues will affect their business in the short and long run. With the help of Perino’s insights, our members can prepare for what is to come and how to react.”

Registration for the 2012 NAFCD and NBMDA Annual Convention is scheduled to open in July 2012. Additional program and registration details, as well as exhibit and sponsorship information can be found on the event website.
