The John Birch Society once again connected with attendees at the Conservative Political Action Conference in Washington, D.C., in February. From its double booth, JBS staff and volunteers shared thousands of pieces of literature, DVDs, magazines, and books while also answering questions from some of the 11,000-plus crowd. The New American, Liberty News Network, and Campus Liberty Alliance were also well represented. Three contributors for The New American covered the show, two video crews from Liberty News Network filmed the goings-on from the show floor, as well as in the booth, and staff and volunteers set-up, manned, and tore-down the booth.
JBS President John McManus garnered many a media interview as reporters and cameramen walked the aisles. Radio Row was a short distance away, and John had a number of radio interviews too.
The majority of booth visitors were happy to see us back, enjoyed talking with us, and were interested in learning more about us and our mission. We are already making plans for expansion next year. Thank you to all who helped, stopped by, or supported us at CPAC.
