The Life and Legacy of President Ronald Reagan

Examining the life and legacy of President Ronald Reagan will be the focus of a symposium and panel discussion Nov. 11 (Friday) from 10 to 11:30 a.m. at the Marriott Wardman Park Hotel in Washington, D.C.

The discussion will feature panelists who worked closely with President Reagan during his presidency and will focus on his domestic and economic policies and how the lessons learned during the Reagan years can be applied to the current economic climate. In addition, they will offer their personal memories of working with America’s 40th president.

Panelists include:

  • Edwin Meese, former attorney general of the United States
  • James Burnley, former U.S. Secretary of Transportation
