2015 Convention Registration


FOR FULL INFORMATION ABOUT THE 2015 CONVENTION CLICK HERE 

 

ONLINE REGISTRATION HAS CLOSED DUE TO LIMITED REMAINING SPACE.

If you are still interested in registering, please contact David Duhalde at dduhalde(a)dsausa.org

 

Our convention, November 13 - 15, will be at a private retreat hotel outside a major city because we want to build a strong DSA community and give us the opportunity to focus on our Socialist Strategy and strengthening our socialist organizing skills.

Because of this, your registration price is ALL-INCLUSIVE. You will not have to pay for food or a hotel room, it is already included in the registration price. We have negotiated a great rate for the hotel rooms, but notice that if you compare the price to past DSA conventions it will seem very high because in the past, you had to pay for your hotel room separately. We have arranged for a sliding scale of registration rates so that you can choose the option which is best for you.

Each attendee must register individually.

The low-income registration rate is subsidized and we encourage only those with real financial need to register at that rate.

Please note that this registration fee is non-refundable.

The Price We Pay blows the lid off the dirty world of corporate malfeasance — the dark history and dire present-day reality of big-business tax avoidance, tax havens - and what we need to do to stop this.  DSA member Bill Barclay, who has a cameo role in the film, will facilitate the discussion.
