The Council for Responsible Nutrition (CRN), the dietary supplement industry’s leading trade association, announced that Jim VandeHei, named one of the 100 most powerful thinkers of the “Information Age” by Vanity Fair, will kick off The Conference: CRN’s Annual Symposium for the Dietary Supplement Industry, taking place at The Ritz-Carlton, Laguna Niguel in Dana Point, Calif., Nov. 5 to 8.
VandeHei, cofounder, president and CEO of Politico, is a must-read political and policy source that Washingtonian called a “media phenomenon.” He oversees Politico’s business strategy. Mr. VandeHei is also the president and CEO of Capital New York. With more than 20 years of journalistic political savvy-including stints covering politics at notable publications such as Roll Call, Wall Street Journal and the Washington Post, VandeHei continues to help define political discourse in America.
“CRN has a reputation for bringing high caliber speakers to The Conference, and Jim VandeHei ups the ante,” said Judy Blatman, senior vice president of communications at CRN. “With his combined political acumen, journalistic curiosity and status as a sought-after political commentator on shows like MSNBC’s ‘Morning Joe,’ our conference participants will not only be entertained, but will be enlightened about the inner workings of national politics.”
