2010 AAI Convention To Be Held in Montreal

Atheist Alliance International is having their 2010 convention from October 1st-3rd in Montreal.

Join us in Montreal for AAI’s annual North American convention, “Atheists Without Borders.” This theme expresses our vision of an international movement, going beyond political and cultural borders, uniting atheists and humanists in one virtual nation defined by our commitment to freedom of speech, freedom of conscience, human rights, critical thought, science and reason.

Speakers include PZ Myers, Daniel Dennett, Susan Jacoby, and all sorts of other awesome people.

If you’re thinking about going (and why wouldn’t you?) and you register for the conference through this link, a portion of your fees will be donated to the Secular Student Alliance!

    by “all sorts of other awesome (speakers)” you mean me, right?

    (Hemant says: Indeed!)

    Mais oui! Love Montreal.

    …why aren’t you among the list of awesome speakers?

    (Hemant says: They didn’t ask? :) And I don’t think I could get to Montreal without travel/lodging covered and that’s a bunch of money)

    I would love to hear Susan Jacoby speak. Freethinkers was one of the best books I’ve read in the past decade!

    Soyez les bienvenus à Montréal (Welcome to Montréal)

    Montréal, the second largest French speaking city in the world (after Paris) is the home of many humanists, atheists, agnostics, secularists, free thinkers and brights. We are thrilled to see you here. I hope you’ll enjoy your visit here and you’ll discover the rich cultural diversity of Montréal.

    Oooh, finally a substantial convention that’s within driving distance!

    I’ll check it out and probably go ~ if Eugenie Scott happens to be one of the other speakers, I’ll definitely be attending :)

    I could drive there from school in 9 hours. Oh I am so, so, so, so (…) tempted. And there is a student pass.

    Any idea if it’s the sort of thing that starts on the Friday evening, or if it would be all/most of the day on Friday too?

    Yay, I’m living in Montreal this year! It’s amazing and I’ve found a lot of like-minded people here.
