The Only Time The Term “NDP Party” Is Acceptable

July 20, 2009

The NDP Convention is happening in a few weeks or so. With many of the NDP’s online activists being there, it would be a shame if there wasn’t some sort of in-person meeting.

Which is why Ian Capstick and Devin Johnston have been working so very hard to set up a gathering, a “Convention Tweet-Up”, which will take place Saturday August 15th 2009 at the Halifax Carleton after the last convention speech of the night.

However, in order for this gathering to be a success, Ian and Devin are going to need some help.

First of all, they need a few small donations, around the $5-$25 mark, in order to fund the event. If you can, send a few dollars their way (watch the conversion between US and Canadian dollars). To further sweeten the pot, if you donate, your blog will be listed on the sponsor board at both the event and the website being built to promote the event.

Second of all, they need support promoting this event, which can be done by blogging, tweeting (hash tag #hfx09), and donating ad space.

With proper support, I am certain that this Convention Tweet-Up will be remembered for years to come. If you have any questions about the event, contact Ian.

      Maybe those that attend it?

      That probably explains why only 4 people have contributed.

    Any idea what other events this will be up against on Saturday? Other than the ridiculously expensive dinner with Layton?

      Well, since I can’t actually go to Convention myself (can’t afford the $800 needed to get to Halifax this time), I wouldn’t have a clue.
