Meyera E. Oberndorf, a former mayor of Virginia Beach, will be the guest lecturer for the Landmark Executive-in-Residence speaker series at Old Dominion University on Thursday, Jan. 28.

Elected to the city council in 1976, Oberndorf was the first woman ever elected to public office in Virginia Beach. During her tenure as mayor, Oberndorf served on the executive committee of the U.S. Conference of Mayors. She also served as vice chairwoman of the National League of Cities International Task Force. Newsweek magazine selected Oberndorf as of the nation's most dynamic mayors.

The Landmark Executive-in-Residence speaker series is designed to enrich students' entrepreneurial spirit, their awareness of the success that can be built on their academic experience and their understanding of the importance of leading with integrity.

The series is dedicated to bringing accomplished business leaders, authors and internationally known speakers to campus to share their history and vision, giving students the opportunity to learn firsthand the strategies and experiences that forge great ethical global leaders.

Established in 2001, the series is funded by an endowment from a group of former Landmark Communications executives in honor of Frank Batten Sr., Landmark's founder and the first rector of the ODU Board of Visitors.
