The Manufacturer and Business Association has announced their keynote speaker today for their upcoming 109th Annual Event.
This year, it's reality television star Willie Robertson from the show "Duck Dynasty" on A&E.
The show portrays the life of the Robertson family, who became wealthy off of their business Duck Commander, which specializes in hunting related products.
Along with the family business and reality television, Robertson is also a New York Times best-selling author.
Tammy Polanski of the MBA explained why they chose Robertson as their guest speaker.
"We think our members from across PA, are going to be very interested to attend this year, to see Willie Robertson and really have him share with our members the challenges, the issues with running a successful business," said Polanski. "Many of our members of course, manufacturer and otherwise, are family businesses."
The event will take place at 5:30 p.m. on May 17 in the Erie Insurance Arena.
