City Club of Cleveland’s New Leaders Programming includes Latinos and Latino issues
By La Prensa Staff

The City Club of Cleveland is over 100 years in duration, featuring timely topics and speakers. One of the reasons for its success is the creation of its New Leaders Programming Committee, which meets every last Wednesday of the month at 5:30PM at The City Club—the committee plans programming in unison with the mission of The City Club.

According to member Jeanette Díaz, the members “generate topics, invite speakers, coordinate logistics, and promote the events. The level of commitment needed to be an active New Leader varies, from offering programming ideas to acting as event chair to coordinating marketing efforts.”

“Our programming initiatives include our evening series and Dialogues on Leadership,” said Díaz, and “for this reason, we have included the event on Oct. 24, 2008 which will discuss the role of Latinos in this year’s election. It begins at 5:30PM.”

As a New Leaders member she thought it important to address the Latino community’s impact during this year’s presidential election.  “That is the reason why the forum was created—to involve the Latino community (and other communities) in an educationally friendly debate and on the issues affecting our community,” Díaz informed La Prensa.   

Friday’s panel discussion—entitled “The Hispanic Community’s Impact on the 2008 Election”—features David Arredondo, Director of International Student Services at Lorain County Community College and former Chairman of the Lorain Area Republican Party, and José Torres, Deputy Legal Counsel for Ted Strickland, Governor of State of Ohio.  The debate moderator will be Jorge Delgado, Director of International Relations for the Cleveland Foundation. 

Díaz worked on this Friday’s program with Stephanie Morales (Collateral Release Supervisor, COIS Associate Leadership Program for National City Corporation), Angela Maldonado (Administrative Assistant for Fund for Our Economic Future), and other City Club New Leaders members and staff.

Established in 1912 to encourage new ideas and a free exchange of thought, The City Club of Cleveland is the oldest continuous free speech forum in the country, renowned for its tradition of debate and discussion.
