Quarles & Brady Hosts Luncheon At the Democratic National Convention

The Honorable Arne Duncan Featured Speaker

Charlotte, NC - The national law firm of Quarles & Brady LLP hosted a luncheon at the Omni Charlotte Hotel during the Democratic National Convention, at which the Honorable Arne Duncan addressed more than 250 delegates, legislators and business leaders on the "The United States Education System and its Impact on Global Competitiveness."

"It was a great honor to hear the perspectives of an authority on education like Mr. Duncan," said Quarles & Brady Chairman John W. Daniels, Jr. "Ensuring a future of real opportunities for our youth is a central feature of Quarles' community service mission, so his remarks were extremely interesting and helpful."

"Arne Duncan's contributions to the success of the Obama administration cannot be underestimated," added Illinois State Senator Kwame Raoul, who has recently joined the Labor & Employment Practice Group at Quarles & Brady. "His vision for the future of America's educational system, embodied in his 'Race to the Top' competition, is a powerful and positive example of the president's progressive agenda."
