Jason Carter becomes chairman of The Carter Center Board of Trustees in November, following unanimous election by the board last spring. Carter will speak at an Atlanta Press Club Newsmaker Luncheon on Wednesday, December 2. Crawford Media Services is the presenting sponsor for this event.
Jason Carter is the grandson of former U.S. President Jimmy Carter and 2014 Democratic nominee for Georgia governor. President Carter’s recent cancer diagnosis has put the spotlight on the Atlanta-based, not-for-profit Carter Center. Jason Carter will speak at this luncheon about the Center’s global mission, present activities and how it is prepared to continue the legacy and vision of Jimmy and Rosalynn Carter to bring hope to the world’s poorest people.
A board member since 2009, he chaired the Center’s recent strategic planning process. He has traveled to Africa and the Middle East on behalf of Carter Center humanitarian programs advancing peace and health in some of the world’s poorest nations, and in early November will co-lead the Center’s observation of elections in Myanmar. He is a partner at the Atlanta law firm of Bondurant, Mixson and Elmore.
