March 12/06/Reno, NV – As frustration within the Conservative ranks begins to reach record levels, the timing of the largest event in the West couldn’t be better. In October of 2007 thousands of Conservatives looking to organize and network on a scale that has yet to be seen will meet in Reno, Nevada for the first annual Conservative Leadership Conference.

The conference, hosted by Citizen Outreach, will have a heavy emphasis on new media and the 2008 Presidential elections. The event will play home to some of the nation’s top Conservative activists and bloggers who desire to see the movement grow into a powerful force in US politics. Organizers are planning hot issue panels, campaign training, blogger courses, Presidential candidate speeches, and a National straw poll.

The visionary’s behind the conference held back no punches in making certain this will be a world class event. The venue for the conference is John Ascuaga’s Nugget Resort, located in Reno/Sparks Nevada. Unlike other similar conferences, the venue has ample resources and tools that will help attendees network and spread the message. With 1,900 rooms, luxury facilities, high speed internet access throughout the entire event center, ample entertainment and dining opportunities, along with a carefully chosen line up of high profile guests and speakers, the venue is certain to be the perfect environment for such an event.

Scheduled and invited speakers live little to be desired as well. Grover Norquist, founder of Americans for Tax Reform in DC, has signed on and his organization is a co-sponsor of the event. Talks are taking place to bring in the likes of Newt Gingrich, Michelle Malkin, Hugh Hewitt, and Morton Blackwell just to name a few. Organizers also expect the GOP Presidential hopefuls to be in attendance.

CLC07 has already turned heads across the nation as many activists have been desperate for such large scale coordination within the Conservative ranks. Austin Walne, a conservative activist from Knoxville, said that he is “glad the libertarian wing is starting to organize in force to balance things a bit.” A sign that a growing part of the “sleeping giant” is ready to wake from its slumber.

Eric Odom, Conference Director, said “Conservatives have a winning message, but we have yet to organize in a manner that can challenge bloated government and bankrupt liberal policy from outside the beltway.” Indeed, Conservatives have been lacking in this area for years now and CLC07 was founded with a vision to change it. “What makes us different is that we’re opening the door for Conservatives who can’t afford to attend a DC based event and we’re making it possible for the front lines of the grassroots movement to finally get involved in fueling the movement with a fire that is badly needed”, said Odom.

Bloggers will be excited to know that they are looked upon as a vital part of this event. In fact, CLC07 was originally “Blogging Man 2007”, a convention aimed at bringing the Conservative blogopshere into a new level of awareness and helping bloggers network in a way that would unify the over all message.

But the event quickly grew into something much bigger than what the planners had expected. Organizers began shifting it into a national gathering of Conservatives with the goal of streamlining the movement and rallying those who have an interest in the future of America.

The final result is the Conservative Leadership Conference, an event that is sure to play a major role in the future of Conservatism in America.
