The focus shifts — at least in part — back to the world of business this year at the Manufacturer & Business Association’s Annual Event.
The association has announced the speaker for this year’s event, scheduled for May 14 at Erie’s Bayfront Convention Center, will be Carly Fiorina, former chairwoman and chief executive of Hewlett-Packard Co.
A commentator on Fox News and CNBC, Fiorina ran unsuccessfully in 2010 against Sen. Barbara Boxer of California.
Fiorina, who served as chief executive from 1999 to 2005, was the first woman to lead a Fortune 20 company.
Recent speakers have included former Vice President Dick Cheney in 2010, former General Electric Co. Chairman Jack Welch in 2011 and political commentators and journalists Chris Wallace, Laura Ingraham, Charles Krauthammer and Dick Morris in 2012.
