Monday Evening, October 17

Dinner Keynote Address

Los Angeles has an NFL team again – and not just any team – but the LA Rams, returning ‘home’ after spending a 22-year hiatus as the St. Louis Rams. While the team will play its home games in the LA Coliseum for the next three seasons, in 2019 the team will have a new stadium to call home, constructed in the City of Inglewood.

We are fortunate to have Mr. Gerard McCallum II join us to tell the story of how this forthcoming NFL stadium in the City of Inglewood came to fruition, what it will look like, and how it will change the face of the neighborhood and the sporting image of Los Angeles. This is a $2.6 billion project – destined to be an NFL showcase stadium.

At Wilson Meany, Gerard serves as Project Manager and is responsible for the entitlements and the overall development of the 298-acre Hollywood Park Tomorrow project, a complex that includes the 75,000-seat NFL specification stadium, 890,000 square feet of retail space, 800,000 square feet of commercial retail and 2,500 residential units. Gerard is also responsible for government and public affairs as well as securing development entitlements for Southern California projects.

In addition to his work at Wilson Meany, Gerard currently serves on the Board of Commissioners for both the California Association of Local Agency Formation Commission (CALAFCO) and the Local Agency Formation Commission of Los Angeles County (LAFCO) which deal with cities and special district formation.

Gerard serves on a number of boards including the Inglewood Chamber of Commerce and The Los Angeles Neighborhood Land Trust. He holds a bachelor’s of science in business administration from Biola University, Summa Cum Laude. He also attended Oxford University, Oxford, England for Biblical Studies.
