2014 LPCO State Convention
March 28th-30th, 2014
The 2014 LPCO State Convention is almost upon us!
Join us Friday evening for "Cocktails with the Candidates." Meet some of the great people vying for offices around our beautiful state in 2014, and chit chat with them about the issues that are important to YOU! At the end of the evening, cheer-on your friends' vocal abilities (or attempts!) during Libertarian Karaoke.
On Saturday, Emmy award-winning liberty journalist Ben Swann will deliver an inspiring keynote speech to kick-off the 2014 LPCO Convention, then it's time to get down to business...
Saturday and Sunday afternoon will be filled with informative seminars from many amazing speakers, including:
Sharon Harris, President -- The Advocates for Self-Government
Billy Johnson, Commentator -- Amidst the Noise and NRA News
Evan McMahon, Executive Director -- Libertarian National Campaign Committee
Geoffrey Neale, Chair -- Libertarian National Committee (LP National)
Don't forget the Banquet Saturday evening, filled with great food, friendly people, and a Banquet Speech presented by 2012 Libertarian Party Presidential Candidate Governor Gary Johnson! After the meal and rousing speech, enjoy the sounds of the beautiful liberty singer-songwriter, Tatiana Moroz.
