Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton is hitting the paid speaking circuit.

A source tells CNN that Clinton has been hired to speak at an April 24 conference in Dallas sponsored by the National Multi Housing Council, a trade group that represents apartment owners, developers and lenders.

It's the first paid speech that has been publicly announced, but a source close to Clinton tells Yahoo News there are likely to be other paid speeches preceding the April 24 remarks announced in coming weeks.

The announcement of the Dallas speech comes as Clinton returns to the public eye this week with two high-profile unpaid speeches. She’ll speak at the Vital Voices Leadership Awards Tuesday night in Washington, D.C. On Friday morning, Clinton will keynote the Women in the World Summit in New York.

It’s unclear how much Clinton is being paid for the Dallas speech. In February, she signed with the Harry Walker Agency, which also represents her husband on the speaking circuit.
