MESSAGE FROM OUR STATE CHAIR: I wrote you at the beginning of this month letting you know that the early bird pricing for the 2021 Convention, to be held in Visalia over the weekend of May 14-16 was ending on today, but we just got confirmation of a few additional speakers so we are extending the early bird pricing by one week! So you now have until midnight on Sunday, February 7th to get the best pricing!
We have now confirmed that our 2020 Presidential and Vice-Presidential candidates, Jo Jorgensen and Spike Cohen will be speaking. We have also confirmed that Marshall Burt, Libertarian member of the Wyoming House of Representatives and Apollo Pazell, Libertarian Party Campaigns Director will be speaking. There will also be a panel of California's newest elected Libertarians and we will be announcing additional speakers soon!
We will also be taking care of business and there's a lot of business to get done at this convention! We will be electing our Officers as well as At-Large members of the Executive Committee, working on important amendments to the Party's Bylaws and Platform and much more!
The convention is the highlight of each year, and this year's convention will be something you don't want to miss. In addition to the great speakers and the important business, it's a time to gather with your fellow Libertarians and have some fun!
