Keynote Address: Congressman John Tanner

John Tanner
Former Congressman John Tanner, who served in the U.S. House of Representatives for 22 years where he represented Tennessee’s 8th congressional district, will be the featured Keynote Speaker for the TnCIS 12th Annual Conference on International Education. While in Congress, John served on the House Foreign Affairs Committee and the Ways and Means Committee, where he served as chairman for the Trade Subcommittee. John also chaired the U.S. House delegation to the NATO Parliamentary Assembly, the alliance’s legislative branch, for several years. In November 2008, legislators from all NATO member nations elected John to serve as President of the NATO Parliamentary Assembly for two years. TnCIS is very happy to feature a speaker with John’s international and government experience. His expertise in these fields can give us a unique perspective on how our programs can prepare students to be future ambassadors and bridge builders in our exceptionally interconnected world.
