Attendees of the National Association of Chain Drug Stores Annual Meeting will get to hear from a big name in politics. Former Speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives Paul Ryan will speak during the Tuesday, April 30, Business Program at the conference, which will be held April 27-30, in Palm Beach, Fla.

Ryan was elected as the 54th Speaker of the House in 2015, and served in that role until January. He was the youngest individual to hold this leadership position in 140 years.

As chairman of the House Ways and Means Committee, Ryan worked to simplify the tax code, protect healthcare choices, advance free trade and strengthen the economy.

Per a prior announcement, presidential historian, public speaker and Pulitzer Prize-winning author Doris Kearns Goodwin also will speak at the 2019 NACDS Annual Meeting.

“We are thrilled to welcome former House speaker Paul Ryan to the 2019 NACDS Annual Meeting,” NACDS president and CEO Steve Anderson, said. “Speaker Ryan will bring his first-hand perspective on the healthcare issues that remain top-of-mind, and on the fight against the opioid epidemic. The former Speaker will share insights from his experience in Congress that will relate directly to NACDS members’ work to serve our society and to the business, policy and political environments in which we all operate.”
