The National Association of Chain Drug Stores (NACDS) has slated General Michael Hayden as the keynote speaker at the 2018 NACDS Total Store Expo.
Hayden will speak during the event’s business program on Sunday, August 26. The NACDS Total Store Expo will run from August 25 to 27 in Denver.
A retired four-star general, and former director of the Central Intelligence Agency and National Security Agency, Hayden will be able to provide the audience with a glimpse into his understanding of national security issues, international conflicts and relations, and the current political climate and the consequences of it.
“It is a tremendous privilege to have General Hayden speak at the NACDS Total Store Expo,” said Steve Anderson, NACDS president and CEO. “General Hayden addressed the 2010 NACDS Annual Meeting and the audience thoroughly appreciated and benefitted from the insights he provided at that event. As the director of the National Security Agency and the Central Intelligence Agency during particularly challenging times in our country’s history, he is highly experienced at dealing with complex security issues and with one of the topics on the minds of industry leaders today: change. It will certainly be an honor to welcome him back.”
In addition to the business program, the NACDS Total Store Expo will feature topics of relevance to the pharmacy, to the front end of stores and to the supply chain.
