Course Descriptions:

  • County Party Development
    • LPIN Chair, Evan McMahon, will lead a session on how to grow your membership – volunteers – donors, recruit candidates, and ultimately become an unstoppable force in local politics. This is the Secret Sauce that has been used by the most active and successful county parties around the country.
  • Communications
    • Brian Nichols, host of The Brian Nichols Show on the We Are Libertarians network, will lead a discussion on how to message the ideas of Liberty to the regular voter…without scaring the crap out of them. Learn how to find the issues that are important to the person in front of you and find a Libertarian way to say “yes”.
  • Treasurer Training
    • LPIN Treasurer, Michael Schultheiss, will guide treasurers for candidates and county parties on the ins and outs of keeping up with expenses, donations, and reporting.

Lunch will not be provided this year, but there are many options for dining that are in very close proximity to the venue and the hotel. We highly recommend attendees use this time for break-out sessions and networking, like district and county meetings for example.
