Convention Early Bird extension to 4-12: Boortz moved, Munger added

[April 7 update: Boortz will not be speaking at the LP Convention.]

-----------------

The Convention Committee has extended the Early Bird pricing until April 12. Part of this is due to confusion and mixed messages over which speakers are scheduled for when. Our speaker lineup continues to evolve and is always subject to change. One recent change is that Neal Boortz has been moved from the Sunday evening banquet dinner speaker position. We do expect Mr. Boortz to speak in a different time slot.

2010 LP Convention St Louis Logo [re-printed from December 2009 LP News]

It’s not too early to put the 2010 National Libertarian Party Convention on your calendar. The 2010 convention will be held Memorial Day weekend from Thursday, May 27 through Monday, May 31 in St. Louis, Missouri. The Libertarian Party has intentionally scheduled many of the recent conventions on holiday weekends because convention hotels have offered lower rates on those weekends.
