Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton will give her first paid speech next month, CNN reported Sunday.
According to the CNN report, Clinton will address the National Multi Housing Council in Dallas, Texas on April 24. While Clinton's fee for the speech was not disclosed, early reports indicated that the former secretary of state will earn upwards of six figures per speaking engagement. According to Politico, she intends to give some of her earnings to charitable causes.
Clinton joined the Harry Walker Agency last month, adding her name to a roster of high-profile political figures including Al Gore, Dick Cheney, Howard Dean and Karl Rove. Her husband, former president Bill Clinton, is also represented by the agency. In 2011, he earned $13.4 million from speaking engagements.
Clinton, who retired from her State Department post in early February, is also scheduled to deliver two unpaid speeches in early April. On April 2, she will speak at the Vital Voices Global Leadership Awards, a Washington, DC event honoring women in leadership roles across the globe. And on April 5, Clinton will give a speech at the Women in the World Summit in New York City.
