We held our 2016 Annual Meeting and Member Dinner on September 14-15, with influential legislators, academics, and industry professionals offering their insights on the industry. The dinner was held at the top of the Hay-Adams overlooking the White House, featuring a Q&A with Speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives Paul D. Ryan and an address by AIC President and CEO Mike Sommers. The following day, a number of panels, moderated discussions, and speeches gave attendees a chance to hear from and interact with leaders who are helping to shape private equity.
Photos from both events are included below.
