Boston College Citizen Seminar
The 50th annual Boston College Citizens Seminar, established to bring together leaders from throughout the community to discuss Boston's most pressing economic and social challenges, opens with remarks by University President William P. Leahy, SJ, and Boston Mayor Thomas M. Menino. University Historian Thomas H. O’Connor delivers the keynote speech, and a lifetime leadership award is presented to Richard D. Hill, the former chairman and CEO of BankBoston.

The panelists are Ranch Kimball, secretary of the Massachusetts Executive Office of Economic Development; Paul La Camera, president of WCVB-TV, Channel 5; J. Keith Motley, chancellor of the University of Massachusetts, Boston; and Linda Whitlock, president and CEO of Boys & Girls Clubs of Boston.
