Key Note Speaker: Alison Levine
Thirteen years after being diagnosed with a life-threatening heart condition that precluded actions as simple as walking up stairs, Alison Levine has served as the team captain of the first American Women’s Everest Expedition and become one of the few climbers to complete the Adventure Grand Slam by climbing the highest peak on each continent and skiing to both Poles.
Levine has also had a successful business career of over 20 years in the fields of healthcare, technology, and finance that has included an MBA from Duke University, a stint on Wall Street, service as deputy finance director in Arnold Schwarzenegger’s bid for governor, and her current position as adjunct professor at West Point. She also has started her own consulting firm and founded the Climb High Foundation, a nonprofit organization dedicated to helping jobless women in Africa become trekking guides and porters in their local mountains.
Levine has been featured in her own PBS documentary, appearances on multiple national talk shows and news programs, several books, and magazines including Oprah Magazine, National Geographic, and Sports Illustrated.
First Class Entertainment: Alex Boyé
Yet another reason to come to convention this year—entertainment provided by the award-winning singer and songwriter Alex Boyé!

Boyé is also a formidable solo artist and has been a featured vocalist on the music video of violin sensation Lindsey Sterling and the captivating Afro-classical version of Bruno Mars's "Grenade." Boyé is best known for his African twist on American pop and gospo-classical music.
