Louisville, KY - The National Quartet Convention Board of Directors has announced plans for former Alaska Governor and 2008 Republication Vice Presidential nominee Sarah Palin to be featured during the 2010 event, set to take place in September in Louisville, KY.
Author, speaker and political commentator, Sarah Palin became only the second female and the first Alaskan on the national ticket of a major party when Republican presidential candidate John McCain chose Palin as his running mate in the 2008 presidential election. Palin was also the first female vice-presidential nominee of the Republican Party.
In November, 2009, her autobiography Going Rogue: An American Life was released and quickly became a best-seller. In January, 2010, Palin began providing political commentary to the Fox News Channel under a multi-year contract.
Governor Palin will serve as the keynote speaker during an hour-long event on Thursday, September 16, beginning at 2:00pm in Louisville's Freedom Hall, located on the grounds of the Kentucky Fair & Expo Center. Palin will speak for 30 minutes and then spend 30 minutes conducting a question and answer session with attendees. Admission to the session featuring Palin will be included with the Thursday Showcase ticket package offered by the National Quartet Convention. Attendees who purchase a ticket for the Thursday event on the NQC website (www.natqc.com) may submit a question to ask during the session. According to NQC Executive Vice President Clarke Beasley, if the question is selected, the person submitting the question will be recognized during the session.
"We are delighted to be able to present Governor Palin to our NQC attendees," Beasley stated. "She is an inspiration to so many, and she is doing many conferences throughout the nation where she focuses on what her Christian faith and her family means to her. Those are the type of topics she will address at the NQC. We are thrilled to host her."
