Tennessee: Libertarians Announce State Convention for April 29-30

From an article on LPTN.net:

The 2011 Libertarian Party of Tennessee State Convention will be held at the Best Western Cedar Bluff Inn in Knoxville on April 29–30, 2011.

The Saturday morning business session will include election of LPTN Officers and proposed LPTN Bylaw revisions.

On Saturday evening after the convention adjourns, there will be a very special event co-sponsored by the Tennessee Liberty Alliance and the LPTN featuring Sharon Harris with the Advocates for Self Government.

Additional activities and events include a Friday evening welcoming reception, complimentary continental breakfast and Saturday morning business session, complimentary lunch, Saturday afternoon speakers, and socializing with fellow Libertarians.  At this time, guest speakers include R. Lee Wrights, Libertarian candidate for president in 2012, and Glenn Jacobs, also known as World Wrestling Entertainment’s “Kane” and Vice President of the Tennessee Liberty Alliance.  Additional guest speakers will be announced as information is received.

As always, we are keeping the cost of the event at a minimum to permit all members an opportunity to participate.  The cost of the event will be $30 per person or $25 for students.  Admission will include refreshments and snacks on Friday evening, Saturday morning pastries, and lunch on Saturday.  An optional hot breakfast will be offered to attendees who are not staying at the hotel at a rate of $6.95 per person, plus tax.  We have secured a room rate of $89 for double occupancy for the weekend.  A block of rooms has been reserved for the Libertarian Party of Tennessee until March 29, 2011.  After that date, the rate may increase to $99.   A Microtel Inn, located approximately three blocks from the Best Western, offers rooms at an even more affordable rate.

The hotel information is:

Best Western Cedar Bluff Inn
420 N. Peters Rd.
Knoxville, TN 37922

This is a challenging time for our nation and our Party.  These circumstances are providing us with an opportunity to build a meaningful and successful political party.  Please feel free to share this information with your friends.  We need your help to succeed and we look forward to seeing you in April.

    I became involved with the Libertarian Party in 2008 when I received an invitation in the mail to the Tennessee State Convention. I gave it some serious thought and at the last minute, decided to drive to Nashville and see for myself what the Libertarian Party of Tennessee had to offer. Not only did I meet some of the warmest and most welcoming people, I realized that libertarians weren’t the crazy wackos that they were made out to be in the media – for the most part ;). It was from this experience that I found a new home in libertarianism.

    I would encourage anyone who wishes to meet and network with others who value Liberty to attend our convention this April!
