April Meeting



 A challenge changing power structures

     “Worldwide, power is shifting from brawn to brains, from entrenched dictators to people in town squares and cyberspace. It’s happening in Venezuela now!” So writes Jack Hardy, coordinator for our Association of Former Intelligence Association’s meeting to be held at 2:00 p.m., April 19, 2014, at Kennebunk High School.

     This insiders’ report on Venezuela and the popular uprising against the Maduro regime will be made possible through Skype with three participants at three locations:


Jack Hardy, in Miami, is a business executive, author and consultant who lived in Caracas for 30 years and traveled widely in Venezuela as well as Central and South America. He was an associate professor of marketing at IESA, Venezuela’s graduate school of business. His text “The Core Value Proposition” is used by business leaders worldwide.

     Jim Wyss, in Bogota, is South America  Bureau Chief for the Miami-Herald and McClatchy newspapers. He holds an MS from Columbia University’s Graduate School of Journalism and a BA in journalism and Spanish from American University. He is author of a blog “Inside South America.”

Born in the early 1960s in Caracas, Eduardo experienced the period when Venezuela was on a path to progress before the deterioration in government and the Chavez regime.
