Sarah Palin to speak at STAFDA 2010

The Specialty Tools & Fasteners Distributors Association (STAFDA) announced that former Alaska governor Sarah Palin will be the keynote speaker at its 2010 convention.

Sarah PalinShe will address STAFDA members on Monday, Nov. 8 during STAFDA’s General Session.

As the 2008 Republican vice presidential candidate who captured much of the public’s attention last year, Sarah Palin will share with STAFDA members her vision for energy independence, health care, fiscal responsibility, small government and national security. She encourages her audiences to look to the future and challenges leaders to do more to support our military, rein in spending and shrink government while creating fiscally responsible health care that benefits all Americans.

Rising from small-town origins to become a dominant figure on the national political scene, she served as the first female governor of Alaska and was the first woman nominated for Vice President from the Republican Party. Her memoir, Going Rogue, was recently released.

Is she controversial? Absolutely, but she’s also the hottest new speaker in years to hit the professional speakers circuit.

In late September, Palin was dubbed a “Facebook Phenom” who has used the social networking tool to share her unfiltered political views with a large audience. She trails only President Barack Obama as the most popular politician on the site. When Palin ended her Twitter feed after resigning as Alaska’s governor, again, she was second only to Obama.

Her STAFDA appearance will be one week following the November 2010 elections.
