Last year’s event was a tremendous success and we hope that you and your organization will join us again on Saturday, Septem­ber 10th to build on the great things we’ve already accomplished.   This year’s Summit will take place in “the heart” of Orange County at the Delhi  Community Center in Santa Ana. We are prepared to host up to 400 participants this year so please plan on attending and bring some new friends along to grow our progressive community even more!   REGISTER ONLINE Please visit our website at http://www.ocprogressivesummit.org to purchase your admission to this unique and amazing event. Tickets are moderately priced at only $15 per person if you buy your tickets online ($20 at the door). Our organizers have worked extremely hard to bring this to you at as low of a cost as possible. With your ticket, you will receive a continental breakfast during registration, lunch, and 2 drink tickets to be redeemed at the “Progressive Happy Hour” immediately following the summit. This is of course in addition to the informative workshops, inspiring speakers, and ex­hibiting organizations.   We are offering a special opportunity for attendees this year: you can be­come an official SPONSOR of the 2011 Progressive Summit with a $100 do­nation; for $250, you can become a GOLD SPONSOR. In both cases,  ad­mission to the event, your choice of workshops, and lunch will be included; in addition, we will put your name in all our publications, showcase your dona­tion in a special section of our program, and give you prime seating for the keynote speakers.
SPEAKERS

He frequently appears on TV and radio, bringing a hard-hitting populist viewpoint that rarely gets into the mass media.
