Help Adoptee Rights Buy the Booth

 From the Adoptee Rights Coalition:

The NCSL Legislative Summit is Aug. 6-9, 2012 in Chicago, IL. In order to have access to the state legislators, we have to purchase an exhibit booth in the main exhibit hall during the conference. We are vying for attention against the huge lobby groups who have giant displays, custom swag to giveaway and are funded by major interest groups. We are, without a doubt, the underdogs of the NCSL fighting against the big corporations. There is no getting around the cost of the booth. 

Please help the ARC BUY THE BOOTH!

 This year the booth is $1,795 and NCSL exhibit hall want their money right away. Minimum 50% down ($897.50) by March 16 or 100% payable after. They’re already assigning booths, but there are a few good ones left at the moment. The better the booth location, the more attention we can bring to the need for new Adoptee Rights legislation, so time is of the essence!

  1. Good luck. Does NCSL give any discounts for nonprofits?
    Why would you want to be at NCSL anyway? I don’t think more than a very, very few (if any) lawmakers actually attend; it’s more like legislative staff (security personnel, IT and support folks, administrators, HR, recorders, non-policy staff, etc). I don’t think that many state legislatures send policy staff, like leg directors or researchers, to these sorts of events.
    Seems like a huge waste of money – I mean, if you want to lobby lawmakers, you don’t do it at NCSL, it’s not very cost-effective.
