The Convention Will Come to Order

I hope your plans are made to attend the Conservative Party USA Convention to be held in New Orleans, Louisiana, July 22-24, 2010.  This will be a unique opportunity for members of the Conservative Party USA to get together to discuss Party activities, goals and ideals and to celebrate the successes to date.

The home of the convention will be the Loew’s New Orleans Hotel.  The hotel is located at 300 Poydras Street, New Orleans, LA 70130.  Check-in policies and hotel information can be found here.  The main hotel phone number is 504-636-3300 .

Room Cost is $126/night for single or double occupancy.  This special rate includes taxes and state fees.  Please make your reservation directly with the Hotel Reservations department by calling 866-563-9792.  Be sure to mention “Conservative Party USA” when you call to assure this special rate. Naturally, a standard credit card required and rooms are subject to availability.

For convention activities, the Registration Fee is $175 per convention attendee.  Be an early bird and register for only $150 per attendee if paid by June 15, 2010.  This fee will entitle you to all the convention activities including the reception on Thursday night, July 22, the banquet on Saturday night (evening wear required), July 24, and the business meetings held during each day (casual dress) of the convention.  Please make checks payable to the “Conservative Party USA” and mail to:

11814 Coursey Blvd #530

Baton Rouge, LA, 70816

Attn: 2010 Convention.

On the assumption that most people will be flying, the most economical transportation from the airport to the hotel is the New Orleans Airport Shuttle.  The rate is $38 round trip or $20 one way per passenger.  This will provide ample savings over the normal $30 one way per person taxi fare.  Please contact the shuttle service to reserve by calling 504-522-3500 or visit their website linked above.

If you plan to drive to the convention, be aware that the hotel provides valet parking with a convention discount of $20.00 per night.

Part of the business of the convention will be the debating of Party Planks.  As a member in good standing of the Conservative Party USA, you are eligible and invited to submit suggestions for consideration to be included in the Party Planks.  The National Site of the Conservative Party USA offers the abstract form for you to make your suggestion.  You will also find on this site the method that will be used for approval of planks submitted by the membership.

I look forward to seeing you there.
