303377_10150664552413860_1413352097_nI had the privilege of attending RightOnline last year in Las Vegas, NV.  I enjoyed last year’s event featuring Sarah Palin and Michelle Malkin, and I am looking forward to heading down to Orlando next week for RightOnline 2013 being held on August 29th-31st.

The RightOnline Conference brings top new media, technology, and messaging experts together with hundreds of committed citizen activists to provide important leadership and grassroots training, offering tools and inspiration to more effectively impact public policy in favor of limited government and free enterprise. The agenda provides a solid program of workshops and training seminars on new media strategies and tools that can be used to mobilize and advance free market policies.

Since 2008 RightOnline has become a premier new media/grassroots training event organized by Americans for Prosperity Foundation.  Looking at this agenda for next week’s conference it looks like it’ll keep the tradition going.
