Former RNC Chairman Jim Nicholson Slated to be 91st Annual Meeting PAC Luncheon Speaker

Western Growers is proud to announce that former ambassador, presidential cabinet member and politician, Jim Nicholson, will be our 91st Annual Meeting PAC Lunch speaker being held at the Grand Hyatt in Kauai on Monday, November 7. Nicholson will make the end of an exciting presidential campaign season even more interesting as he provides attendees with his last-minute take on the eve of one of the most controversial elections in recent history.

Nicholson’s distinguished and prestigious career has seen him hold high-ranking positions in politics, government and in the private sector, in addition to his involvement in several humanitarian efforts.

Most notably, he served as chairman of the Republican National Committee from 1997 to 2001 and was Secretary of the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) from 2005 to 2007. Prior to his tenure at the VA, he served as U.S. Ambassador to the Holy See. Pope John Paul II knighted him for his leadership on human rights issues.

Nicholson currently serves as senior counsel at the law firm of Brownstein Hyatt Farber Schreck, LLP where his practice includes counseling clients in public policy, health care, state and federal regulatory law, international relations, real estate, oil and gas, and alternative energy.

“Mr. Nicholson brings the perfect blend of politics, public policy and diplomacy to our Annual Meeting,” said WG’s Vice President of Member Relations Randy Hause. “We are thrilled and honored to have him.”
