Christine Lagarde to Speak at Georgetown University Oct. 2

October 1, 2014

Managing director for the International Monetary Fund (IMF), Christine Lagarde, will explore challenges facing the global economy during a lecture at Georgetown University Oct. 2. Lagarde’s talk, sponsored by the Office of the President and webcast live at 11:00 am from historic Gaston Hall, comes just before the IMF and World Bank’s annual meetings on Oct. 10-12 in Washington, D.C.

The French global leader became the first woman to head IMF in 2011 and the first woman to serve as minister of finance and economy for a G-7 economy prior to her appointment at IMF. Lagarde joined the French government in June 2005 as minister for foreign trade after a brief stint as minister for agriculture and fisheries. She has also served as chair of the ECOFIN Council, which brings together economics and finance ministers of the European Union.

As a member of the G-20, Lagarde was involved in the group’s management of the 2008 financial crisis and helped foster international policies related to financial supervision and regulation to strengthen global economic governance.

Harbour Nights with David Andrew Smith Sept. 24

September 22, 2014

Relax on the plaza at the Washington Harbour and hear live music at Harbour Nights for the last time this year on Wednesday, September 24th.

Local musician, David Andrew Smith will be performing beginning at 6:30 pm, next to outdoor restaurants on the Potomac River waterfront in Georgetown.

After studying music composition and performance at Salisbury University, David migrated from the small-town atmosphere of his youth on the eastern shore of Maryland to the city of Baltimore, where he has since been pursuing his dream. He now performs four to seven shows a week along the mid-Atlantic region of the US and has gradually been expanding his tours up and down the East Coast, developing a strong fan base and attracting attention from many professionals in the music industry.

Washington Harbour is located at 3000 K Street in Georgetown
