NFA 5 Canceled
Speakers and Registrants:

It is with regret that we announce the cancellation of the Northwest Free-thought Alliance Conference scheduled for April 5, 6, and 7 at Portland State University.

We are not sure why we didn’t obtain the minimum number of registrations; we’ll be trying to determine that in the next few weeks. The economy remains tight, there are many competing free-thought events, there’s the competition from YouTube and TED, and other possible factors.

We hope this cancellation does not cause more than a minor disruption for you.


  • If you paid for your registration via PayPal, we’ll be refunding your money the same way.  You can expect a refund in the next few days.

  • If you paid for your registration by check, we’ll be contacting you about which option you’d prefer: tearing up your check or returning it to you.

Awards and Grants

We’ll continue soliciting submissions for the Dustin Finney Award and for grants to organizations in the region. Both those functions will remain active on the web site,

We at NFA remain fully committed to the same goal as all of you-- bringing increased rationality to the complex world around us. If you’d like to contact me or the rest of the Planning Team, use[/url]­.

Thank you for your support of the conference and its goals.
