Whether you are interested in education or networking, food or fun, speakers or social activities – please join us at our next conference. 2010 LSLA Conference The Libertarian State Leadership Alliance will be holding its annual conference from February 26 to February 28, 2009, in Austin, Texas – and you don’t have to be a state chair to attend.

The LSLA Conference is an ideal opportunity for state Libertarian Party leaders to network. New leaders can learn about what works, and what doesn’t, from people in other states. It’s also a great opportunity to socialize with old friends and make new ones. By exchanging best practices, we can increase the professionalism and effectiveness our party.
