Apr 30, 2013

CHICAGO — Don Mann, former member of SEAL Team Six and author of the best-selling “Inside SEAL Team Six: My Life and Missions with America’s Elite Warriors,” will be the keynote speaker for The Traffic Club of Chicago’s 106th Annual Dinner on May 16, 2013.

“As a member of SEAL Team Six for eight years and a U.S. Navy SEAL for more than 17 years, Don Mann has some thrilling stories to share,” said Eddie Beard, president of the Traffic Club. “And, in addition to serving our country, he is a best-selling author and an accomplished endurance athlete and mountaineer. We are honored to have him keynote our annual dinner.”

The event will be held Thursday, May 16 from 6–9 p.m. at the Hilton Chicago Hotel in downtown Chicago. The club’s annual golf outing will be held the day before on Wednesday, May 15 at the Cog Hill Golf Club in suburban Lemont.

Traditionally, more than 900 transportation executives attend the two annual events, with many planning high-level meetings around the scheduled events. Since its founding in 1907, The Traffic Club of Chicago has been the place for shippers, carriers, government officials, and others involved in transportation to work together toward common goals.
