Launched last year, this Darien Community Association speaker series returns to spotlight some of Darien residents. They may be your friends and neighbors — but they are also some of the most successful leaders and innovators in their respective fields. They will share insights from their careers and discuss issues and trends in their industry. Gold sponsors include Northern Trust and John M. Glover Insurance Agency and Bronze sponsors: PG Properties, Hawes Team and Nancy Dauk of Halstead in Darien, and Darien Police Association.
Ticket prices include a wine reception. Attendees will have the opportunity to win special items, including two tickets to the Emmy Awards in September, to benefit the nonprofit mission of the DCA.
