Conference speakers will include Michael Kaiser, founder of the De Vos Institute of Arts Management at the University of Maryland and former president of the Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C.; Robert Rex, winemaker, Deerfield Winery; Jeremy Hunter, PhD., assistant professor at the Peter F. Drucker School of Management, Claremont Graduate University; and Laura Carstensen, director of the Stanford Center on Longevity.
