Event scheduled for Sept. 17
COVINGTON, Ky. (Sept. 8, 2015) — Jill Meyer, new Cincinnati USA Regional Chamber president/CEO and former member-in-charge of Frost Brown Todd, will address the Covington Business Council luncheon crowd at noon on Sept. 17 at the Madison Events Center in Covington.
Meyer takes over the reins of the region’s largest business membership organization at one of the most pivotal periods in the region’s history, with strong momentum and development along the riverfront and Central Business District and continued growth in Over-the-Rhine and Uptown.
But as a region, Cincinnati USA is also dealing with its share of challenges—racial issues, talent attraction and transportation—including creating a more competitive fare price structure at Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport.
Meyer, Frost Brown Todd Member-in-Charge since 2009, led the firm’s business development, civic and charitable initiatives and client relations. She accepted the Chamber leadership role in August 2015 after a 19-year career with FBT where she maintained a full legal practice and oversaw the firm’s advertising law consultancy.
A magna cum laude graduate of Mount Saint Joseph University and Salmon P. Chase College of Law at Northern Kentucky University, Meyer has been named to Best Lawyers in America consistently since 2007 for Media Law and Intellectual Property Litigation.
She serves on the boards of Cincinnati Arts Association, Hamilton County Development Disabilities Services, YWCA and the Regional Economic Development Initiative (REDI) Cincinnati. She and her husband, concert pianist Awadagin Pratt, are chairs of the 2016 ArtsWave campaign.
Networking/Registration starts at 11:30 a.m. Free parking is available in the adjacent 7th Street City Garage.
