    ...“Having Al as our featured speaker is a great lead up to the biggest event in metro New York in 2014,” said Bill Mooney, WCA’s president. 

    With his team, Kelly is overseeing all host activities leading up to Super Bowl XLVIII, history’s first outdoor, cold-weather Super Bowl, which will be held on February 2, 2014, at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, N.J., home stadium of both the Giants and Jets. The game is projected to generate over $500 million into the regional economy. Kelly, 54, was appointed to the NY/NJ Super Bowl Host Committee in April, 2011, after a distinguished business career, the last 23 years of which were spent at the American Express Company. Most recently, he was President of the financial services giant from 2007 to 2010, leading the global consumer businesses, worldwide servicing, and enterprise
    wide risk management.

    In addition to Kelly’s address, the Fall Leadership Dinner will feature a special Silent Auction and some surprise entertainment. (Could it be the return of James Bond?) Organizers are expecting the dinner to be sold out early.
