Sannion, Chantelle d'Eros and myself just got back from checking out hotels for the Polytheist Leadership Conference and have decided to go with the Quality Inn in Fishkill, New York. They were clean and spacious and economical and most importantly we were impressed by the efficiency and friendliness of the staff. So we signed the contract and this thing is now officially a go!
The Polytheist Leadership Conference will take place Friday, July 11th through Sunday, July 13th – though we’ve made arrangements so that you can get the block room rate if you want to come in earlier on Thursday.
We’ll begin on Friday at 3:00pm with an opening prayer to our collective dead and polytheist predecessors and then have a lecture and roundtable discussion with the rest of the evening devoted to socializing and networking.
We’ll start at 10:00am on Saturday with a full day of workshops, lectures and roundtable discussions ending at 8:00pm. There’ll be half hour breaks between each session and an extended lunch and dinner.
Sunday begins at 10:00am and has two sessions with a social lunch and then a closing ceremony at 3:00pm.
We’ve got the website for the Polytheist Leadership Conference up and running and are now accepting registrations.
We’ll be updating the blog portion of the site as time goes on with information such as directions and transportation options, the catered menu, details about presenters and so forth – so be sure to bookmark the page!
Speakers must submit a bio and description of their presentation by April 2nd.
All attendees must register by June 1st, especially if they want the discounted room rate.
If you have any further questions please send them to us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
