Elizabeth Dole


Red Cross is a Business of the Heart

Elizabeth Dole, President and CEO of the American Red Cross, addressed the Chief Executives' Club of Boston at a luncheon meeting on June 10, 1998. After updating the audience on the current status of the Red Cross and their campaign to groom current personnel into potential top managers, Mrs. Dole brushed aside quesions about what comes next for her-including whether she might run for president or become a GOP vice presidential candidiate. Mrs. Dole continues to be viewed as a potential powerhouse on a presidential ticket, according to an article in the Boston Herald, but, "I really have no plans to leave the Red Cross", she said.
