Lawson to speak at HCPBWA meeting


Indiana Secretary of State Connie Lawson will talk with local business women at the Hendricks County Professional Business Women’s Association (HCPBWA) meeting at 6:30 p.m. April 10 at Park Square Manor.

She will speak about being a woman in the corporate world, how she got into politics, and how she juggles work and family.

“We ’re excited to have Secretary Lawson speak at our April meeting,” said Patti Henson, HCPBWA president. “We believe her experiences as the newly appointed Secretary of State, a state senator, and a business woman will be of interest to women in Hendricks County.”

Gov. Mitch Daniels named Lawson as the new Secretary of State on March 16. She had been the Majority Floor Leader and a state senator since 1996. Lawson has been a champion of local government reform efforts.

Additionally, Lawson served as clerk of the Hendricks County Circuit Court from 1989 to ‘96. During her tenure, the Indiana State Election Board named her election administrator of the year in 1993. She was also named clerk of the year by the Indiana Clerk ’s Association in the same year.

“I look forward to meeting with the Hendricks County Professional Business Women’s Association to discuss current issues and my perspectives,” Lawson said in a press release.

The event is open to Hendricks County business women. A light meal will be served at 6:30 p.m. prior to the meeting. The cost is $7, payable by cash or check, to HCPBWA.

Reservations are due by noon April 9 and may be made by contacting Karla Coleman at Park Square Manor by calling 272-7300 or by e-mailing to Kcoleman@Sscq.com.
