SILVER SPRING, MD — Chuck Todd, NBC News political director, and chief White House correspondent, will be the keynote speaker at the Security Industry Association (SIA) Government Summit, the premier annual public policy conference in the security industry. The SIA Government Summit will be held June 3-4, 2014, at the W Hotel in Washington, D.C.

“Chuck Todd is a premier analyst who will provide SIA Government Summit attendees with insight into significant political trends impacting our membership and the industry. His expertise will complement our discussion of government policy trends during the summit,” said SIA CEO Don Erickson.

Todd is responsible for all aspects of NBC News’ political coverage, serving as the point person for political news and information. He is the on-air political analyst for NBC Nightly News with Brian Williams, TODAY and Meet the Press, where he is a contributing editor as well. He also edits First Read, the network’s must-read guide to political news and trends in and around our nation’s capital. With what Washingtonian calls a “savant-like knowledge of politics,” he has become a fixture in the White House press room, a steady and constant presence on television and a tireless voice on the campaign trail. His up-to-the-minute poll analysis and insightful commentary have made him one of the most sought-after voices in American political coverage, and his on-air political analysis can be seen almost daily.

The SIA Government Summit provides attendees with unique policy insights that help create new market opportunities.
