About the Heartland Leadership Forum

Each year, the Upper Midwest Chapter of the USNA Alumni Association hosts the Donald W. McCarthy Heartland Leadership Forum, an inspiring evening that unites leaders of today and tomorrow with living legends who’ve gone before. If you’re a leader in any sector (corporate, public, government), a student aspiring to lead, or a Naval Academy graduate, this public event is for you!

The Heartland Leadership Forum was named in honor of Minnesota’s own Donald W. McCarthy, a graduate with the Naval Academy’s Class of 1944 who served in both World War II and the Korean War. He then climbed the corporate ladder with Northern States Power (now Xcel Energy) to become Chairman and CEO. During his illustrious career, Don also led many community organizations that helped to shape the Twin Cities to become the vibrant business and social community it is today.
