The big day has almost arrived!
As many readers already know, tomorrow the NWroots Fellowship and NPI are holding the fourth NWroots Conference in Pioneer Square, Seattle, at Comedy Underground and Fx McRory’s. We’ve got a fantastic lineup for the event, including Roger Goodman, Jay Inslee, WSLC President Jeff Johnson, Jim McDermott, Dennis Kucinich, and former Canadian Minister of Health Ujjal Dosanjh. We’re very much looking forward to seeing many of you there!
If you haven’t registered yet, we encourage you to do so now. A few days ago, we introduced a half-day registration rate, which is perfect if you can only come for either the morning sessions or the afternoon sessions. The half-day rate includes breakfast or lunch (but not both, unlike the standard, full-day rate).
The festivities begin with breakfast and registration tomorrow morning at 7:30 AM at Comedy Underground. The program gets underway at 8:30 AM, and the morning sessions conclude at 11:30 AM, when lunch begins. The afternoon sessions run through 5:30 PM, with the candidates’ social in between at 3 PM.
This conference was one of our late boardmember Lynn Allen’s favorite things. She and I organized the first NWroots Conference in 2006 in Olympia, which was the first formal netroots + grassroots gathering in the Pacific Northwest. I’m happy to announce that, based on registrations, we will be setting a new attendance record for NWroots tomorrow. I know that wherever Lynn is, she’s proud of our efforts and proud that we’re making this happen.
Again, if you’ve been thinking about joining us in Pioneer Square, I urge you to register now. It’s not too late. You can walk up and register tomorrow, but preregistering gets you in the door faster and guarantees you a meal ticket.
We hope to see you tomorrow at Comedy Underground!
