[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.
Michael Munger, the 2008 Libertarian candidate for Governor in North Carolina has been added to our speaker list and will probably be the Sunday evening dinner banquet speaker.
The convention website is maintained by a volunteer LNC member and is not always able to keep up with the emerging details. However, we’ll try to keep you updated on important details on this blog at LP.org and with occasional email announcements.
Michael Colley emailed this update:
– I have extended the Early Bird opportunity through Monday 12 April – let’s push Gold Package sales – the best bargain overall!!
– Our ability to keep our meeting space without $$ cost depends on making our room-night numbers – please urge all attendees to stay in the hotel! (by the way, the contracted rate for rooms is good for 2-3 days before and after our Convention dates).
– The speaker slate will come out soon. Recall the "fairness" I spoke of some time back – no one running for an LNC office will get any Convention podium time until the agenda shows that the office is up for nomination and election.
– The speaker for the Sunday evening Banquet will be a solid Libertarian who I greatly admire. Mike Munger and the North Carolina LP ran a good campaign for Governor with highly visible media attention. He got enough votes to get us on the ballot, thereby saving us thousands of $$ in ballot access money!! It will be great to hear about his successful campaign and his plans for the future.
Please share this email with all of those on your team!!
