You are invited to the Armenian National Committee of America's Leadership Conference in Washington, DC from June 24 to 27, 2011. The conference, entitled "Armenian Cause 2.0: Social Networks, Grassroots Power and Smart Advocacy," will feature a robust array of educational, interactive, and hands-on training sessions from leaders in government, advocacy, and media, as well as networking opportunities, creative social events, and visits on Capitol Hill.
The conference will kick off with a rooftop reception at the historic W Hotel (the city's best view of the White House) on the evening of Friday, June 24th, will give you a unique opportunity to explore how we can better leverage our social networks, grow our grassroots power, and sharpen our smart advocacy skills. While optional, we encourage all who attend to participate in the Congressional visits arranged by the ANCA on Monday, June 27th. There will be plenty of social and networking opportunities to share ideas and inspirations with Armenian Americans from across the country.
Your registration fee of only $150 ($75 for students) is your ticket to a full schedule of presentations and workshops ranging from new strategies for community organizing and social media to communicating with Congress, the 2012 political landscape, and new legal approaches to the Armenian Cause.
As a grassroots group, we know that the best investment we can ever make is in our people. The activists who will participate in this program - from veterans to newcomers - will leave energized and equipped with the advocacy tools, connections, ideas, and energy to advance our cause against powerful opposition from Ankara and Baku.
Please consider joining us for this conference. For more information, to register, and to reserve your hotel room at a discounted rate of $149/night, please visit www.anca.org/conference.
