​Pulitzer Prize-winning author and historian Doris Kearns Goodwin and Aneesh Chopra, the first U.S. Chief Technology Officer, are among the featured speakers recently confirmed for ACE’s 96th Annual Meeting, March 8-11 in San Diego.

Goodwin has written several biographies of U.S. presidents, including Team of Rivals: The Political Genius of Abraham Lincoln, which is the basis for the Academy Award-winning film Lincoln. She will discuss her books, her perspectives on American presidencies and leadership lessons during the Monday, March 10, 8 a.m. plenary session, which will be moderated by ACE Senior Vice President Terry Hartle.

She will sign copies of her November 2013 book, The Bully Pulpit: Theodore Roosevelt, William Howard Taft, and the Golden Age of Journalism, after the plenary session.

Chopra’s March 10 luncheon plenary session will focus on ways technology can spur innovation, strengthen America’s competitiveness in the world and solve the problems facing higher education today.

Chopra served as the United States’ first Chief Technology Officer under President Obama from 2009-12, where he promoted innovation, transparency and collaboration within the federal government.
