In less than two months, the 2011 NRLC Convention in Jacksonville, Florida, June 23-25 will be here.
We’ve already been busy laying down plans and are hard at work preparing to make this Convention one to remember. And when you can headline “Fred Barnes in attendance,” you’ve got a hot top of the ticket. But, to switch metaphors, Mr. Barnes’ appearance is just the tip of the iceberg. After all, when you’ve got:
- Over seventy workshops and sessions Seasoned grassroots activists and very pro-life speakers.
- The largest meeting of pro-life leaders in the country
- Presentations on the latest information in every topic of pro-life interest
- A full exhibit floor with booths from some of your favorite pro-life groups
- An entire teen Convention running alongside the adult Convention
You’ve got the most important educational resource for pro-lifers in the country. And Fred Barnes. Did I mention Fred Barnes?
Right to Life chapters across the country need to bookmark the Convention as a must-attend event. Whether you’ve gone before and could use a refresher or the chance to network with old friends within the movement, or haven’t gone and want to see what it’s all about, you need to be there with us.
Chapters should set aside money in their budgets to send one or two representatives to the Convention. You can always host a small fundraiser or seek out a few donations to help raise the cost of travel expenses. Sending a representative from your chapter will make sure that your person can bring back all the information they learned to share with your members, and we can meet and hear from them.
The Convention is one of the primary ways we at NRLC stay in touch with the vast network of pro-life chapters which do the real heavy lifting in the movement. This is our chance to give back to you and hear from you, to find out what’s working and what isn’t, to find out how we can assist your efforts in the best possible way.
All of us at National Right to Life look forward to seeing you all there.
