Our Agenda
Registration 9AM
Program Begins 9:30 with introductory remarks and a speech by Tracy Ryan called “Politics is a People Business”
Between 10 and 11 AM we will have a panel discussion about Political Labeling. Three highly experienced people in the area of Hawaii politics will talk about the labels we attach to folks such as “liberal”, “conservative” “progressive”, “Democrat or Republican” etc and how we can work with and around these concepts.  The panel will include Sam Slom, John Carroll, and John Radcliff.
Between 11 AM and Noon we will hear speeches from Danny DeGracia about Libertarian Presidential Nominee Gary Johnson, and from Andy Mukk on the Ron Paul campaign.
A Lunch will be served at noon.  A smaller breakout room will be available at this time for smaller sessions to run concurrently with the program.  Some may lunch in this room and chat with Dick Rowland about his Liberty Coalition.
Around 12:45 we will start the program up again with some remarks from Alan Matsuda.
Between 1 PM and 2 PM we will run programs in both rooms.  In the main room we will have speeches from Ron Paul Republican Mike Greco who seeks to win election to the State Senate, from Libertarian Fred Fogel who seeks election to a Big Island House seat and from Share Christie who will talk about the legal case against her husband Roger.  There will also be some remarks from Mike Hansen about the Jones Act and other announcements.
In the breakout room we will run a mini-convention for the Libertarian Party between 1 and 2 PM.  There is only the business of approving some changes in the Executive Committee so this might not take the full hour.
Between 2 PM and 3 PM attendees will have the choice between a panel discussion on Messaging and Media in the large room and a focus group on the Liberty Coalition in the small one.  The panel will include two working journalists Malia Zimmerman and Danny DeGracia. Dick Rowland will lead the focus group on the Liberty Coalition.
From 3 to 5 PM the time is turned over to interactive focus groups.  There will be two focus group periods. The first one starting around 3 PM will include one on the Jones Act lead by Mike Hansen, one on Roger Christie lead by Share Christie, and one on the UH student group Young Americans for Liberty and how we can get young people interested in our politics.  This will be lead by Nick Gregory.  While these are going on the first of two focus panels on the Ron Paul campaign and the Tampa experience will run in the smaller room. This will be lead by Andy Mukk and will be repeated at 4 PM.
At 4 PM the second round of focus groups that will run until we need to start closing down at 4:45. In the main room there will be one on Rail lead by Cliff Slater, a repeat of the Roger Christie, and another to be announced. Focus group comments are off the record and we will ask that no one be quoted without their permission.
