FLORIDA DEMOCRATIC BLACK CAUCUS CONVENTION WEEKS AWAY
I have been asked to note here that the 24th annual convention of the Democratic Black Caucus of Florida is coming up July 14-15 at the Imperial Swan Hotel & Suites (formerly the Sheraton Inn Lakeland), 4141 South Florida Avenue in Lakeland. The theme for the Friday/Saturday event is No Vote Left Behind, A Democratic Call To Action.
There will be a number of workshops dealing with issues from Running to Win to Restoration of Civil/Voting Rights to Campaign Funding. There will also be a candidate forum featuring state and federal candidates.
Registration is $125 for caucus members, $150 for non-members, and $50.00 for full time students. The registration fee includes all meals, workshops, and materials. Contact the hotel at (863) 647-3000 to reserve a room until July 2 at the convention rate of $79.00 plus tax; just ask for the Polk County Democratic Caucus rate. I will have more here soon regarding the awards banquet and Saturday breakfast.
The event is open to all registered Democrats. Click here to download the registration form (Please disregard the reference to Miami...it's in Lakeland this year!)
To find out more, contact DBCF President Daisy Black at (305) 754-6141, or Rev. Alex Harper, Polk County Caucus President, at (863) 660-7100.
