Right Online Conference This Weekend in Minneapolis
The Right Online Conference will be held this year at the Hilton Minneapolis this Friday and Saturday.
RightOnline is a project of Americans for Prosperity Foundation dedicated to advancing liberty and prosperity for all Americans through greater citizen participation online.
The RightOnline Conference brings together influential new media experts, representatives of conservative organizations, and hundreds of citizen activists to provide important leadership and grassroots training, offering the tools and inspiration to more effectively impact public policy in favor of limited government and free enterprise. The agenda provides a solid program of workshops and training seminars on new media strategies and tools that can be used to mobilize and advance free market policies.
The RightOnline initiative was launched in July of 2008, with more than 600 activists and bloggers attending our first ever RightOnline Conference in Austin, Texas. It was the first conservative event to ever counter the leftwing Netroots Nation Convention (formerly known as YearlyKos), an annual gathering of what the media called the most concentrated gathering of high-profile progressive bloggers to date.
This year the speakers include:
Governor Tim Pawlenty, Congresswoman Michele Bachmann, Congressman Tim Huelskamp, Michelle Malkin, Andrew Breitbart, Herman Cain, John Fund, S.E. Cupp, Ed Morriseey, Erick Erickson, Guy Benson, Senator Mike Lee, Mary Katharine Ham, Rep. Thaddeus McCotter, Rep. Marsha Blackburn, Rep. John Kline.
I will also be speaking on Saturday morning at the conference.
