New Hampshire Institute of Politics - (Auditorium)
Andrew H. Card, Jr., former White House Chief of Staff under President George W. Bush, will join the Institute to present a discussion titled, "Advising a President."
Secretary Card, the second longest tenured White House Chief of Staff, has served in senior government roles under three U.S. Presidents and presently holds numerous positions. Card serves on the Board of Directors of public corporations Union Pacific and Lorillard, on the Business Advisory Board of BrainStorm Cell Therapeutics, on the Global Advisory Board of Alexander Proudfoot, on the Advisory Board of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, and on a number of non-profit boards.
Secretary Card, appointed in November 2000, served as Chief of Staff to President George W. Bush from January 2001 to April 2006. In this capacity, he coordinated the priorities of the Administration’s agenda, the development of policies, and appointments of Cabinet Secretaries and senior officials throughout the government. On September 11, 2001, Card is the one who whispered in President Bush’s ear while the President was sitting in a classroom in Florida, that terrorists had attacked the United States. Card then led a government-wide reorganization to best allocate resources to deal with the aftermath of 9-11 and the new terrorist environment.
He also served as Deputy Chief of Staff and then as a Cabinet Member for President George H.W. Bush as the 11th Secretary of Transportation from 1992 to 1993. From March 1987 until March 1988, Card ran the successful New Hampshire Presidential Primary Campaign for George H. W. Bush.
