Promoted from the diaries and edited slightly by DarkSyde

The YearlyKos Board of Directors and Advisory Board are proud to announce the first confirmed speaker at our (and by 'our' we mean the DailyKos community's) convention in Las Vegas June 8-11, 2006.

Click here to read our official press release at the YearlyKos web site.  You'll also find details on registering for the convention, making reservations at the official YearlyKos Hotel---the Riviera---and other important information.

The YearlyKos Board of Directors announced today that Democratic Senator Harry Reid will speak at the 2006 YearlyKos bloggers convention in Las Vegas, Nevada.
But before you click on the press release, it's worth repeating our mission statement so you can see why his presence is so significant...

YearlyKos is a nonprofit corporation that seeks to unite the netroots with the organizations and resources striving to build progressive infrastructure and advance the progressive values of preserving and promoting the environment, equal rights, separation of church and state, good governance, ethics, enlightened international relations, media reform, voters' rights, and election reform.

Simply put, we want to foster collaboration between those who blog and read blogs and the organizations and resources which will benefit from reaching this large and passionate audience.  Through this collaboration, we will build an annual convention.

Sen. Reid doesn't just have his finger on the pulse of American politics ... in many ways he is the pulse of American politics.  We are humbled by his acceptance, and we hope you'll be as excited as we are to have him address our community in person.

This is your convention.  Who else would you like to see/hear during it?  Let us know!

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.
