Hi -

I know we have not spoken in some time so I hope you are well. I wanted to see if we could pass this invitation through you to Ms. Roberts at the WNBA. It is for our WLF Conference in DC.

Also, the President will be back in Chicago on 10/27 - I will bother you then about that.

Thanks so much - Jordan

Invitation for Ms. Michele Roberts at the WNBA. Formal invitation letter also attached.
Dear Ms. Roberts,
I hope you are having a wonderful beginning to fall! I am the director of the Womens Leadership Forum at the Democratic National Committee, and, on behalf of DNC Chair Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz, I am writing to invite you to attend and participate in our 22ndannual National Issues Conference on October 23rd.
The WLF is an initiative of the DNC launched in 1993 to increase female engagement within the Democratic Party and encourages women to invest in the Party as a means of shaping conversations around policy and politics. The conference is an annual event and is the largest event put on by the DNC - both in terms of number of attendees and dollars raised. The President, First Lady, and Vice President always participate. This year, the President will be delivering the keynote address, and the Vice President will be speaking as well. We will be joined by the 2016 Presidential candidates who all have the opportunity to speak to the general session.
Historically, we confirm top tier speakers to moderate and speak on panels about policy, electoral politics, women & family issues, and business.
I would like to invite you to speak on a panel of female business leaders who are pioneers in their fields. The panel would be an opportunity to share your inspiring story and career lessons learned with an audience of over 600 young women interested in becoming increasingly civically active. I would be happy to have a conversation about the request and other confirmed participants pending your availability and interest.
We would be honored to include you in our program. Thank you for your consideration,
Claire Olszewski
Womens Leadership Forum Director
