Immigration Legislation: Retreat or Reform?—Hear it from a “conservative”
CLEVELAND: Angela “Bay” Buchanan, chair of Team America PAC and television commentator, will speak about Team America’s mission to make undocumented immigration a significant part of the national political debate and to identify, recruit, and help elect to public office individuals who are committed to enforcing U.S. laws and securing borders at noon on Thursday, June 8, 2006, at The City Club of Cleveland.
Buchanan, a noted conservative commentator, regularly appears on CNN’s “The Situation Room.” She began her political career as the national treasurer for Ronald Reagan’s successful presidential bids. At the age of 32, Buchanan was appointed by Reagan to Treasurer of the United States, making her the youngest person to hold that office. Later, she chaired her brother Pat Buchanan’s presidential campaigns, and in 1996, was recognized by George magazine as one of the top 20 political women in the nation.
From 1996 to 1999, Buchanan anchored “Equal Time,” a political talk show initially on CNBC and then MSNBC. She also worked as a political analyst for “Good Morning America” in 1992, and from 1996 to 1997, hosted a two-hour radio talk show program covering current events.
A native of Washington, DC, Buchanan has a master’s degree in mathematics from Canada’s McGill University.

Diversity and Innovation = Strong Universities
Syracuse’s Nancy Cantor at The City Club of Cleveland
Dr. Nancy Cantor, chancellor and president of Syracuse University, will speak on the topic “Building Intellectual and Social Capital through Diversity and Innovation” at noon on Friday, June 9, 2006, at The City Club.
Cantor, a Distinguished Professor of Psychology, is recognized for her scholarly contributions to the understanding of how individuals perceive and think about their social worlds, pursue personal goals, and how they regulate their behavior to adapt to life's most challenging social environments.
Cantor has been an advocate for racial justice and for diversity in higher education. At the University of Michigan she was closely involved in the university's defense of affirmative action in the cases “Grutter and Gratz,” decided by the Supreme Court in 2003. Cantor has also lectured and written extensively on liberal education and the creative campus.
Prior to Syracuse, Cantor was chancellor of the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. She has held a variety of administrative positions encompassing all aspects of a research university—from chair of the department of psychology at Princeton to dean of the graduate school and then provost and executive vice president for academic affairs at the University of Michigan.
