Conservative Bloggers, Activists to Convene in Reno
Training & Western Themes to be Showcased
(Washington, DC) - A new conservative gathering in the West will be held
this fall in Reno, Nevada, on October 11-13th. The Conservative Leadership
Conference (CLC) is being co-hosted by Citizen Outreach and Americans for Tax
Reform. The conference theme is "Conservatives and the New Media,"
devoting considerable focus on bloggers and the Internet cyber-activist
community, as well as traditional grassroots activism.
"As dissatisfaction within the conservative ranks begins to reach record
levels, the timing of this event in the West couldn't be better," says CLC '07
director and conservative blogger Eric Odom. "With Nevada being a key
swing state, the location is ideal as well."
In addition to traditional panel discussions and issue debates - primarily
concentrating on fiscal, free-market, state's rights and individual liberty
issues - CLC '07 will feature a two-track training program for grassroots
activists and cyber-activists conducted by some of the leading training
instructors in the country today.
Presidential candidates will be invited to address the conference, and an
awards banquet featuring the first annual "State of the Conservative Union"
address is included. The conference will wrap up with the announcement of
the results of a planned "straw poll" of the 2008 presidential race.
The venue for the conference is John Ascuaga's Nugget Resort, located in
Reno/Sparks Nevada. The resort has ample resources and tools which will
help attendees network, blog and spread the message. Combined with
excellent fall weather, 1,900 rooms, luxury facilities, high speed internet
access throughout the entire event center, entertainment and dining
opportunities, the Nugget Resort is a perfect location for this event.
Registration fees are being kept to a minimum to allow the widest possible
attendance by grassroots bloggers and activists of all incomes. 50%-off
early-bird special rates, good through May 31st, range from just $50 for a
three-day Conference Only pass to just $125 for a full Silver Pass which
includes the awards dinner and receptions. In addition, a limited number
of rooms are available at the Nugget Resort for conference attendees at only $96
