Democratic National Committee Chairman Howard Dean announced his appointment of Leah D. Daughtry to serve as Chief Executive Officer of the 2008 Democratic National Convention Committee (DNCC). Daughtry is currently the Chief of Staff at the DNC, responsible for managing day-to-day strategy and operations of the national party.
Among her many accomplishments, Daughtry served at the U.S. Department of Labor as Assistant Secretary for Administration and Management during the Clinton Administration. In that capacity, she oversaw the development of the Department's management programs and policies, including responsibility for the Department's $35 billion budget. Throughout her career, Daughtry has been widely recognized as bringing sound, principled management and leadership practices to organizations with which she has worked.
We are excited and honored to have Ms. Daughtry as our keynote speaker to the Eleanor Roosevelt Awards luncheon on October 26
