Central New York will welcome the former White House Chief of Staff during a commemorative breakfast next month.

The Genesis Group has announced its 22nd annual 9/11 Remembrance Breakfast as well as who will be the special guest speaking at the event.

This year's guest of honor is Andrew H. Card, Jr., the man who famously told President George W. Bush that the World Trade Center was attacked.

Card served as the White House Chief of Staff under then-President Bush from 2001 to 2006. He also served as the head of the president's White House Iraq Group.

Per the Genesis Group:

As chief of staff for President George W. Bush, assistant to the president/deputy chief of staff for President George H. W. Bush and special assistant and director of intergovernmental affairs for President Reagan, Andrew H. Card, Jr., has been at the center of U.S. politics for over 20 years. Whether it is in the middle of a presidential campaign or inside the Oval Office with a world leader, Card knows how things actually work—the reality versus the myth. At President Bush’s side on September 11, 2001, Card knows firsthand the geopolitical factors and risks at stake that affect the global business environment. 

Considering the current political climate, paired with tensions in the Middle East, Card's speech sounds eye opening and an opportunity you'd be foolish to miss.

How to meet Andrew Card
