From Gary Odom, here are the latest details on the Constitution Party’s Fall meeting.
The Constitution Party’s Fall meeting will be held in Coeur d’Alene, Idaho.
The location selected is the famously beautiful Coeur d’Alene Hotel and Resort, 115 South Second Street, Coeur d’Alene, ID 83816. It can never be said that our state affiliates don’t have a neighborly attitude. The Constitution Party of Washington is hosting this meeting, and it was they who suggested that the best place to hold the meeting would be ….. in Idaho about thirty miles east of Spokane. The Coeur d’Alene is a world class resort located on the shores of the idyllic Lake Coeur d’Alene. Grab this opportunity to visit the beautiful northwest, while working with Constitution Party leaders from all over the country to plan the 2012 presidential nominating convention, and work on strategy for the presidential election, state party development and ballot access.
The National Committee meeting will start Friday morning at 8:30am. Pastry, fruit and coffee will be served in the meeting room. Lunch will be included and there will be a banquet Friday evening. Also on Friday, there will be a Western States Regional meeting. The meeting will reconvene on Saturday at 8:30am, and adjourn by mid-afternoon. Again, coffee, fruit and pastries will be served in the meeting room.
In addition to important strategy development for the upcoming presidential election year, an inspiring line-up of speakers is set with more expected. Confirmed speakers include Liberty Roundtable Host, Sam Bushman, 2008 Constitution Party Vice-Presidential nominee, Darrell Castle, former Constitution Party Director of Communications, Scott Bradley, 2010 CP of Utah U.S. Senate Nominee and Constitutional Scholar, Mary Starrett, Former Alabama Chief Justice Roy Moore, Constitution Party 2008 Presidential Candidate Chuck Baldwin, former Virginia Congressman 5th District, Virgil Goode.

The hotel will take down the time of your arrival and the shuttle will meet you at the airport.

The cut-off date for reservations is September 7th, 2011. This is a world class resort, please make your reservations early. There is no guarantee rooms will be available at all if you wait.
Please register as soon as possible for this meeting. You’ll save money and we’ll be able to plan a better meeting if we have a good idea of the attendance early. The presidential election year is approaching at a rapid pace. The Convention is in April of 2012. Ballot access, presidential recruitment and convention planning will be topics under discussion at this meeting, so it is important that we have a large turn-out from many states.
