In honor of reaching 100% Plus in membership, National President Colette Bishop is proud to announce Jeanne Robertson, an award-winning humorist, motivational speaker and a former Miss North Carolina and physical education teacher, will speak at the 2017 VFW Auxiliary National Convention in New Orleans. Jeanne will address Convention attendees at 9:00 a.m. on Tuesday, July 25.

About Jeanne Robertson

Award-winning speaker Jeanne Robertson is an expert in humor, whether regaling audiences with her experiences as a 6’2″ Miss Congeniality winner in the Miss America Pageant or outlining the steps to developing a sense of humor. Jeanne is past president of the National Speakers Association and was the first woman to win NSA’s top honor, the Cavett Award. A member of the Speakers Hall of Fame, Jeanne was also honored by Toastmasters International when it named her the recipient of its Golden Gavel Award, presented annually to one individual who has demonstrated outstanding skills in communication and leadership.

Author of three books on humor, Jeanne has produced six DVD/CD humor programs in the last eleven years and can be heard daily on Sirius XM Radio’s Laugh USA, the Family Comedy Channel. This lets millions nationwide know she speaks two languages fluently: English . . . and Southern.

Don’t miss this great opportunity to hear how having a sense of humor is more than a laughing matter. It is a strategy for success.
