Good morning and good news…prayers have been answered and it looks like any bad weather will have moved out by later today, and tomorrow should be good for driving to Annapolis! UPDATE: OOPs! Sorry! The forecast changed somewhere late in the day!
We hope that this first MD CAN conference, which has now generated so much excitement with last minute registrations, will be the beginning of more networking across the state to promote conservative principles through action locally, statewide and nationally.
See you tomorrow!
Some last minute updates:
If you haven’t seen the press release yesterday, check it out here and send to your media contacts. Bring, or send us, your media contacts so we can compile a state list for everyone to use.
We will be finalizing the registration list this morning and will have to cut it off at noontime, so that we can get down to Annapolis. However, you can still register at the door tomorrow morning. It looks like we will have around 175 participants, but it could be more depending on how many come tomorrow without advance notice.
There are about 10 registrations from late yesterday that have not been checked in (or possibly a few in the Post Office Box), but will be acknowledged this morning. However, don’t hesitate to e-mail me, Ann, email@example.com to check on your registration if you are concerned about it.
There were also a few e-mail addresses that were not legible or were kicked back, so that may be why you haven’t heard anything.
If you are paying at the door, remember cash or checks, we do not have the ability to process credit cards.
We have about 18 booths (tables) that various groups have reserved in the main concourse to promote their organizations. Please come early to allow time for meeting the group leaders. Registration opens at 8:30 a.m. with coffee and refreshments available. This is your best time to mingle and visit organization booths.
Be sure to take a few minutes and read our speaker bios. Although each has a long list of accomplishments and a distinguished career, for the sake of time, we aren’t planning to spend a lot of time introducing them. Also, if you read the bios it may help you formulate questions for a back and forth discussion with our presenters, something we very much want to encourage.
Lunch table discussion topics
We would like to make our lunch break another opportunity to network and meet activists involved with other issues and from other areas of the state. So when you check in, note on the reverse side of your agenda that this list (below) of lunch table discussions will be available. As we break for lunch, about half of the tables will be identified as tables for the various topics. You are not limited to those topics! The remaining tables are for those who wish to sit with friends new and old and just enjoy conversing about whatever. So, just pick up your boxed lunch and head to the table of your choice. If the table is full and it’s a topic that you really want to be involved in, just pull up an extra chair.
Some of our speakers and group leaders will be leading some of these lunch table discussions:
ART OF PERSUASION
RIGHT TO LIFE
RUNNING FOR OFFICE
