Party Conference set for Sept. 21st

Our annual party conference will be Saturday, September 21st at Encuentro 5 in Boston.  The conference will focus on planning, expanding our platform and organizing how-tos. We will have time for lightning talks and possibly a small number of panels. Formal sessions will start at 10am and end around 5:30pm. We plan to video stream the conference.

Registration is $10. Youth under 18 and anyone who is not a citizen or permanent resident are free due to campaign finance rules. You can pay in advance or just tell us you will attend if you prefer to pay at the door, are not a citizen or permanent resident or are under 18.

If you are interested in presenting or participating in a panel, please tell us by Saturday, September 7th. If you want to organize a panel discussion, please provide the contact information for other speakers who you want to speak with you or have agreed up to speak with you.

Encuentro 5 is at 9A Hamilton Place, Boston, MA 02108-4701. It is in downtown Boston near the State House and easily accessible by public transit. Only a minute walk away from the Park Street MBTA station, it is at the intersection of the Red and Green lines. It is a few stops away from the commuter rail and Amtrak stations and the South Station Bus Terminal. Unfortunately, it is not wheelchair accessible.
