FOR  IMMEDIATE  RELEASE……

The St. Louis Tea Party Coalition has announced a two day spring conference event designed to determine the effectiveness of grassroots organizations on the State Legislature. Bill Hennessy, co-founder of the organization, explains “The Spring Conference will help us take account of our progress since the first tea parties of February 2009, and to determine measurable actions for the next 18 months.”

Hearings will be held from 9 am to 4:15 pm on Friday, June 10 2011 in Jefferson City.  Committees will reconvene on Saturday, June 11, for committee work, report writing on the findings of the hearings, and a general address of overall findings.  The conference will hear closing remarks by a panel of celebrity panelists at 4 pm Saturday, followed by an evening social.

The eight established  Committees: Legislative, Economics, Commerce, Conservation, Science, Government, Education, and Culture will be questioning Legislators in an open examination of the State of the grassroots movement.  In the process, the organization expects to forge stronger bonds between people and groups from around the state as well as evaluate and elevate the grassroots experience of the past two years, giving the cause greater depth and impact .

The St. Louis Tea Party Coalition is extending an invitation to up to 50 grass-roots organization to co-sponsor this event.  Each sponsoring group will be permitted two delegates to the event.  Delegates will be assigned to a Panel and to a Committee and chosen delegates must be named no later than June 3, one week prior to the conference opening.  Assigned delegates will question witnesses and write committee reports on testimony and future actions.  All sponsorships are designed to help off-set the cost of the event.

Sponsorships include lunch and refreshments on Friday and Saturday.

In addition to group delegates, the Conference can accommodate up to 100 at-large delegates. These individuals will be assigned to panels and committees as space permits. They will receive lunch and refreshments on Friday and Saturday.
