SHARE NATO summit: Madeleine Albright in Chicago and more. UPDATES

Former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright is in Chicago on Tuesday to talk to students at the Lindblom Math & Science Academy, 6130 S. Wolcott Ave., about the May NATO summit in Chicago. Albright is an honorary co-chair of the Chicago NATO host committee.

The Lindblom students are partnering with a school in Kabul–in Afghanistan, where NATO has troops–in order to learn more about the summit.

The Chicago NATO host committee–which does not make all its activities public--is also briefing at lunch today for the Chicago Central Area Committee while the private security firm, Hillard/Heintze hired for the summit is briefing the Near South Planning Board.

Also interesting, though not disclosed by the Chicago NATO host committee, is that Albright is also speaking to Chicago’s large counselor corps and the Chicago NATO “welcome committee.” The event is at the Union League Club.
