oh, and one other thing - it's in Detroit!

Please look below the mango marshmallow for all the exciting details!

                                                  ALL ARE WELCOME!!!

That's right, NYC Kossacks - we're going to Netroots Nation 2014, and I hope you'll be joining us there!

First, a little bit about the convention: I've been to all of them, except the first one, and I keep coming back. It is the biggest, most exciting, most informative, warmest, and friendliest gathering of progressives you will ever attend. I've gotten to see talks by two presidents, seven presidential candidates, and more senators and congresscritters than I can count, many of those latter two categories in very approachable settings. Then there are those authors, broadcasters and activists whose work you admire - they'll be there, too. And they want to talk with you.

Not to mention the other Kossacks! You already know these people, and you like them (well, meta notwithstanding!). You want to hang out with them, attend their panel discussions and training sessions, and of course, party with them! Seriously, meeting other Kossacks from all over the country is the ultimate in building an activist community, and you will make friendships you'll treasure for the rest of your life.

And here's where the NY angle comes in: we get our own table. That's right, because there will likely be a significant number of us NYers in attendance, (and I include the whole area, not just NYC), if I can get enough RSVPs from you folks, we will have a table at all the plenary sessions in a prime location, reserved just for the NY Kossack delegation. And if we get more than one table's worth, we can have a second table!

So please, answer the poll, and give me your username in the comments, so I can look forward to seeing you, and sharing a table with you, in Detroit!

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
