Speaking Engagement: Eisenhower Addresses Philadelphia Civic Group and Discusses Ethics in PoliticsOn September 24, 2009 by Schnader
James J. Eisenhower, Chair of the Government and Regulatory Affairs Practice Group at Schnader Harrison Segal & Lewis LLP, spoke to a gathering of the Philadelphia Committee on City Policy (PCCP) on September 24 at the Racquet Club in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania as part of PCCP’s Fall Speaker Series. His presentation addressed emerging issues on ethics and politics in Philadelphia, and included a discussion on the federal corruption case brought against former Senator Vincent Fumo, the role of the new Ethics Commission, and the Nutter Administration’s heightened emphasis on ethics, among other things.
Since its formation in 1952, PCCP’s mission has been to keep its members informed on matters involving city and regional public policy; to serve as a bridge between government, non-profits and the private sector; and, be a catalyst for sound public discussion and action. PCCP holds monthly forums featuring speakers from government, business, non-profits and other public interest groups. PCCP also collaborates with other civic groups in presenting forums, and occasionally holds members-only policy briefings on cutting-edge issues.
