The Secular Humanists of the Lowcountry is proudly sponsoring the
2012 Carolinas Secular Conference. Held here in Charleston this
year, the Carolinas Secular Conference is an annual opportunity for
freethinkers, leaders, activists, visionaries, and team members from
across the Carolinas region to come together and share ideas, plans,
and initiatives between themselves, for local groups, and the region
as a whole. Are you interested in helping to build a better, secular
Carolinas regional community? If so, THIS ANNUAL EVENT IS FOR YOU!
Last year at our first annual event we met in Carolina Beach, North
Carolina, and began to establish a true network of communities
across the region. Since that time we have seen established groups
and programs thrive, and also new groups of Freethinkers from every
viewpoint spring up in many areas. The conference provides a ground
for learning and sharing, bringing in speakers to inform and train,
as well as awarding grass roots achievement by individuals across
both states. As well as a working event, this is also a celebration
and a place to have fun. The highpoint of our program is the
Carolinas Freethinkers Banquet, where we hold the Freethought social
event of the year, with fine food, exciting speakers, highly
publicized awards, and spend the very best quality time with
freethinking friends, old and new. This event is a celebration of
our growing secular movement and culture, but also a chance to join
in a live network of planning to meet the challenges of the next
year and the coming decade.
