Michael Steele At A Glance:

As the former chairman of the Republican National Committee (RNC), Michael Steele was entrusted to revitalize the Republican Party. He is an expert on political strategy, fundraising, PACs, and election reform. Michael Steele delivers a stirring presentation on his personal journey from his childhood as the son of a working mother in Washington, DC, to his difficulties in college, his years in a Catholic seminary, and his election to public office and rise in the Republican Party.

As the former chairman of the Republican National Committee (RNC), Michael Steele was charged with revitalizing the Republican Party. He is an expert on political strategy, fundraising, PACs, and election reform.

Steele made history in 2003 as the first African-American elected to statewide office in Maryland, and again with his subsequent chairmanship of the RNC. A self-described “Lincoln Republican,” he also served as Chairman of the GOPAC. Under Steele’s leadership, the RNC broke fundraising records in the 2010 cycle by raising more than $192 million and Republicans won 63 House seats, the biggest pickup since 1938.

An MSNBC political analyst since 2010, Steele frequently appears across the network’s programming and special political coverage, offering his take on the top news stories and issues of the day. His writings on law, business and politics have appeared in leading outlets including the Wall Street Journal, Politico, The Journal of International Security Affairs and his book, Right Now: A 12-Step Program for Defeating the Obama Agenda, received critical praise for delivering a call to arms for grassroots America.

An in-demand speaker who examines the crux of business, politics and race, Steele draws from his unique combination of experience to deliver relevant and insightful perspective on the day’s most important issues affecting individuals and businesses across the country.

The event was great! Everything worked out perfectly and Mr. Steele's talk was wonderful; our staff and the students/community members all had positive reactions.

One of the nicest, most congenial guest speakers we have ever had and extraordinarily easy to work with. Mr. Steele was a pleasure.
