Over at the LP Blog the last ten posts, and counting, are about the party’s participation in the Conservative Political Action Conference. Granted, the coverage is pretty darn good, and we are at least doing some outreach somewhere, in contrast to much of what has taken place the last few years. But when is the last time we did anything like this at a liberal conference? When will there be one, and does the LP have any plans of attending?
My exchange with Steve Gordon (LP national communication director) in the comments at:
p) Steve and Joe,
Keep up the good work.
I sincerely hope the LP also does this same type of outreach and coverage at some similar upcoming event for liberals, to provide much-needed balance in our outreach.
Do you know of any such upcoming events, and do you have plans to attend and cover them?

Suggest an event where 1) we’d even be allowed in the door, 2) where we’d have some reasonable outreach opportunities, 3) that it would be logistically reasonable (it is easier and cheaper for a DC-based organization to attend an event in DC than one in San Francisco) and we’d very clearly consider it.

That is certainly a reasonable answer.
Unfortunately, I don’t know about where and when the big liberal conferences in the DC area take place, just as I would not have known about CPAC but for the LP’s participation, but I’ll research it. I’m going to put this out on a variety of yahoo groups and see if anyone knows.
