Noia announces Valerie Plame as a 2016 conference keynote luncheon speaker

Posted in Releases on January 14, 2016

Delegates of the 2016 Noia Oil & Gas Conference will be treated to an engaging Keynote Luncheon featuring Valerie Plame, “Outed” CIA Operations Officer and best-selling author of Fair Game & Blowback.

As a covert CIA Operations Officer, Valerie Plame worked to protect America’s national security and prevent the proliferation of mass destruction. In 2003, without warning, she found herself at the heart of a political firestorm when senior White House and State Department officials revealed her secret status to several national journalists, including a syndicated conservative newspaper columnist who published her name.

Since her covert identity was compromised, Plame has become a public advocate and respected authority on issues of national security, nuclear proliferation, and politics. Her outing has played a central role in the country’s turbulent struggle to redefine the first amendment and the right to privacy.

As our opening day Keynote Luncheon speaker, Ms. Plame will share with conference delegates her incredible story as a true patriot, undercover spy and national figure.

The Keynote Luncheon, Fair Game: My Life as a Spy, My Betrayal by the White House, will take place on Tuesday, June 21, 2016, from 12:30 to 2:30 p.m.

The Noia Oil & Gas Conference 2016 will once again offer the most current information from the oil & gas industry in Newfoundland and Labrador’s offshore. The annual Noia Conference is the largest offshore conference in Canada and provides delegates with crucial information on trends and business opportunities in the East Coast Canada oil & gas industry.
