Former President Bill Clinton will be in Indianapolis on Tuesday as the featured speaker at a national conference for insurance professionals.

The Insurance Accounting and Systems Association is hosting its four-day Educational Conference Business Show where Clinton will speak.

“President Clinton has moved beyond the scope of U.S. politics to become a figure of worldwide renown and importance,”  Joe Pomilia, executive director for IASA, said in a statement last year when the organization first announced Clinton as the keynote speaker. ”We’re very excited to be able to expose the association’s diverse membership to his viewpoints and opinions.”

As the Indianapolis Star reports, IASA spokesman Jennifer Overhulse indicates Clinton will likely discuss business and leadership challenges.

Bill Clinton, husband of possible 2016 presidential candidate and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, also will take questions from the audience. “So anything is possible,” Overhulse said, including questions relating to the insurance industry and Hillary Clinton’s interest in health care reform.

Overhulse would not disclose how much Bill Clinton will be compensated for the paid appearance.

The event is not open to the public. About 27,000 people plan to attend the event.
