Two Great Conferences:

Yes, it is time once again for the annual Defending the American Dream Summit, our sister organization, AFPF’s banner event where free-market champions from Main Street to Capitol Hill come together for an unforgettable weekend with a shared desire to advance the time-honored ideals of economic freedom. For the first time ever, AFPF’s RightOnline conference–the premier conference for liberty minded bloggers, social media gurus and online activists–will be running simultaneously right down the street at the Loews Portofino Hotel. NC activists at the Summit can catch a session at the RightOnline conference, if they wish.
