By a CEO Trustee
On Tuesday, November 10, members of the Philadelphia Chapter held an engaging and informative discussion with Congressman Mike Fitzpatrick. The Congressman shared his unique insights and perspectives on leadership and the challenges and issues faced in the current Congress.
He also gave an intriguing and insightful update on the current issues and events in the Nation's capital.
The Congressman is a member of the House Financial Services Committee and is vice chair of the Subcommittee on Oversight and Investigations. He plays a important role in the efforts of the Congress to combat terrorism.
While his comments were made prior to the tragic events in Paris, France, his advice and insights now resonate and take on greater meaning and significance. The Congressman shared his insights on the work of the Congress and Federal agencies to understand the flow of monies being used to finance terrorism. Cracking these financial networks is crucial to efforts to contain and combat terrorism.
The Congressman also reviewed his efforts to fight for stronger borders, lower taxes, smaller budget deficits, and his efforts to recognize the contributions of our deserving Veterans. He is clearly a strong voice and advocate in the Congress for business and for his constituents.
The Congressman responded to many questions from our members and our dialogue was relaxed, candid, and informative. The meeting was very engaging and productive and many thanks to the CEO Trust, Chuck Steege, and our host, the law firm of Stradley Ronon, for arranging another excellent event.
