The Holiday Inn Visalia hosted LPC’s annual convention in 2009, and so impressed delegates with its service, food, and elegant surroundings that many wished to return for our 2010 annual convention. The City of Visalia is the center of lively and friendly nightlife between Fresno and Bakersfield, as well as being a major gateway into the gorgeous Kings Canyon National Park and Sequoia National Park.
Holiday Inn Visalia is located just off Highway 99 in Tulare County, and is less than 200 miles from Los Angeles, less than 220 miles from Sacramento, and less than 240 miles from San Francisco, and so is easily reachable by car. Holiday Inn Visalia offers free parking for guests.
If you enjoy the comfort of traveling by rail, Amtrak serves the City of Hanford, 15 miles west of Holiday Inn Visalia. Shuttles and public transit are available from Hanford’s Amtrak station.
Platform and Bylaws Committees are scheduled to meet on Friday, March 28, 2014, from Noon until 6 p.m. To serve on the Platform Committee, please contact your county Party officers or your Regional Vice-chair now.
On-site registration opens at 6 p.m. Friday, March 28, along with the Friday evening reception.
On Saturday and Sunday, delegates can deliberate and vote in the convention’s business sessions. Delegates will nominate and elect California delegates to the upcoming national Libertarian Party convention [new rules in effect: see Bylaws and Convention Rules, Rule 12: Election of National Convention Delegates, (page 23, paragraphs 1-6)], choose new Executive Committee representatives, adopt or reject proposed changes to our Platform and Bylaws, endorse or reject candidates for California’s public offices, and deliberate other resolutions presented from the floor. As well, the convention will feature speakers on various topics of interest to liberty-lovers (speakers and topics to be announced as they confirm).
The deadline for new LPC members wishing to be delegates is Sunday, December 29, 2013. Please join LPC before then if you wish to be a voting delegate at the convention.
