TODAY'S
HAPPENINGS!


 

Just a couple hours ago (we report quickly) we saw a bunch of our association friends at an Economic Club of Washington luncheon for Treasury Secretary Hank Paulson, and we thought we'd lighten your day with some factoids you might not know.

 

Motion Picture Association of America CEO Dan Glickman, right, was getting pretty excited at lunch with us, and it wasn't just because of his impending appearance in Bisnow. He told us one of his son's movies, 27 Dresses, is a nominee for most popular picture at tonight's People's Choice Awards in LA. His son is president of producer Spyglass Entertainment; their latest movie, which he hopes you've seen, is Four Christmases. As for his workaday life, Dan says they're pretty happy with tax legislation they help get passed last session that will keep film production jobs in the US. With Dan, his VP for Federal Policy Frank Cavaliere, whom we last knew when he was leg director for then-Senator George Allen.   

 

An old pal of ours, John Engler, right, head of the National Association of Manufacturers (and former Michigan governor) with Freddie Mac head of external affairs Hollis McLoughlin and Chevron head of policy and public affairs Lisa Barry. John says he was sorry to see Bill Richardson withdrew his nomination to be Commerce Secretary, given a "great environment for business" he says Richardson helped create in New Mexico.

 

Former Washington Board of Trade president John Tydings with, in front row, Goodwill regional president Catherine Meloy and parking lot queen Cherrie Doggett; and standing, Cardinal Bank of Washington president Kate Carr and Meyer Foundation head Julie Rodgers.  Julie says Meyer is linking donors via its website (www.meyerfoundation.org) to great non-profits serving families during the downturn.


WOMEN RULE!
 

Enjoying those famous lobster burgers at Central Friday night (before seeing West Side Story) was Russell Reynolds' Association and Government Affairs practice leader Denise Grant, with friend (and former Fannie Mae CEO) Frank Raines. Denise predicts that 2009 will be the year of the woman, having just completed two searches where large trade associations selected women as new CEOs.


COFFEE AND TAXES
 

Tate & Tryon's Charlie Tate is adeptly getting into the new "man of the people" culture of Washington, happily showing visitors how to get coffee in their office kitchen. He says the IRS just released "final" 990 forms before Christmas and reminds non-profits you have four and a half months after the end of your fiscal year to file them (excluding extensions). As he stays up late to help clients do it, we recommend he keep lots of strong coffee in supply.
