Lisa M. Ledbetter, a partner in Jones Day's Washington Office, has been elected Chancellor of the Exchequer Club of Washington, D.C.
The Exchequer Club provides a forum for senior thought-leaders to engage in frank and open sharing of information and opinions on national financial, economic, legal, and political matters. Formed in 1960 by a small group of financial services professionals, the Exchequer Club now has more than 300 members representing financial institutions, trade associations, federal and state regulatory agencies, Congressional committees, law firms, and the national press.
The Exchequer Club's past speakers include Cabinet-level secretaries, chairs and commissioners of Federal regulatory agencies, chairs of Congressional committees, state attorneys general and superintendents, and private business leaders active in shaping the financial services sector.
"I am honored to be elected Chancellor of the Exchequer Club. The Club fosters thought-provoking and cutting-edge discussions that enrich and sharpen the business, regulatory, and economic acumen of the financial services community. It is a privilege to be recognized by my peers to lead the Exchequer Club," Ms. Ledbetter said.
