  4. Hi everyone! We are soliciting proposals for presentations at our fourth annual conference, ATLOSCon 2013, which will be held in Atlanta from May 23-27. Details can be found here: http://atlos.org/index.php/atloscon-2013/2013-rfsp/. The deadline for all proposals is February 1! Thanks! ~Jenn
  5. We hope to see you there! http://www.rsvpbook.com/event.php?485151 ~Jenn
  6. We put out a list of classes and speakers for ATLOSCon 2012. Go here to see it!
  7. ATLOSCon 2012 Request for Speaker Proposals! We at the Atlanta Objectivist Society (ATLOS) are working hard on preparations for our third regional conference to be held May 24-27, 2012 in the Atlanta area. Our first two conferences set the bar pretty high for an enjoyable combination of social events and interesting presentations. And this year, we are striving to do even better. If you are interested in becoming an ATLOSCon Speaker, please read the following carefully (and note the deadlines!). WHAT WE ARE LOOKING FOR A wide-range of topics--philosophy, art, science, cooking, fly-fishing, whatever you are passionate about! Knowledgeable speakers who are passionate about their topics--many of our best speakers the last two years did not have official credentials, but they knew their subjects well and presented them with flair. And we love our credentialed speakers as well! Interactive presentations--we love to get our audiences really involved in the presentations (and their feedback shows that they love it too!), so discussion groups, panel-led presentations, interactive exercises, demonstrations, and tours are all very much encouraged. THE PROPOSAL The proposals are due by February 1! Send them to [email protected] Proposals should follow the following format and be no more than one page long (<--NOT optional!! Don’t make us send it back to you for a revision! Kelly is an English instructor and is very practiced at that!): Working Title for your presentation Which format (discussion, interactive, lecture, etc) your presentation will be in and why A ONE PARAGRAPH summary of your topic and a few of the main points you plan to cover--this does not have to be a long detailed outline of every point, just give us a good idea of what your topic will be about A brief biography, including why you are interested in this topic and prior speaking experience if applicable (note: not having tons of speaking experience will not automatically disqualify you from speaking--we are planning speaker support sessions after we’ve selected the speakers, and this will help us know how much and which types of support we can plan to provide) We will make decisions about the presentations by mid-February. We are anticipating that we will receive more proposals than we can accommodate at the conference, so there are no guarantees that your proposal will be accepted. But hey, nothing ventured, nothing gained, right? And, maybe, just maybe, you will be one of the chosen: the few, the proud, the unpaid but much beloved! WHAT’S IN IT FOR YOU? ATLOSCon is our Objectivist club’s primary fundraiser and is strictly a volunteer-run conference. It helps to fund activism, social events to connect Objectivists, and educational experiences. But never fear! That doesn’t mean we rely on altruism! There are many selfish reasons to participate as a speaker. Speaking at a regional mini-conference means: Getting some great speaking experience (and a resume/CV line!) Sharing your area of interest with others who might love it, too Meeting and hanging out with like-minded people Doing your part to change the culture Supporting an active and vibrant community Objectivist group Fighting for the future while doing something to create the world you want TODAY Becoming famous! (well, maybe just a little) Looking forward to your proposals! Don’t forget to get them in by FEBRUARY 1! --Kelly and Jenn and all of the ATLOS Peopleguys
  8. When I view the page in Chrome, the resolution looks off. The type is larger than usual and the photo of the book is pixelated. Just FYI, I love the other changes. And I just wanted to thank you and the others at ARI who are responsible for making this book available online. I use it and link to it often on my blog. I will especially enjoy being able to link individual quotations! ~Jenn
  9. Hi everyone! Registration for ATLOSCon 2011, hosted by the Atlanta Objectivist Society (ATLOS), is now open! To learn more about ATLOSCon, check out our website.

  10. I'm pleased to announce that the schedule, class descriptions and speaker information are now up on our website. Registration is coming up soon! Please help us spread the word about our conference! I'm happy to answer any questions. Hope to see you in May! ~Jenn
  11. Last year, the Atlanta Objectivist Society threw a conference (MiniCon) over 4th of July weekend that was an unqualified success! We had so much fun that we're throwing another conference. This year our conference will take place at the end of May over Memorial Day Weekend. We are in the planning/prep stages right now. There's an interest form on our website now, and if you are considering coming to our conference, please help us out by taking our quick survey. Thanks very much! I'll post details about the conference as they are solidified. Oh, and tell your friends! ) ~Jenn
  12. The Atlanta Objectivist Society (ATLOS) has officially been up and going for about a year! We have about 40 members who come semi-regularly to our events, and our mailing list has over 170 people as of this writing. We host many different social and educational events in the metro Atlanta area for those who are sincerely interested in the ideas of Ayn Rand. These events include a monthly happy hour, current events discussion groups, groups studying Ayn Rand's works, and optional values/interest groups. Last year, we threw a "MiniCon" and 67 people gathered together for a long weekend of fun and learning. This year, we're doing it again! ATLOSCon 2011 will take place over Memorial Day Weekend, so mark your calendars! Speaking of calendars, we keep the calendar on our website updated with our events. We also have a Facebook page and a Twitter account if you prefer to keep up with us that way, too. If you live here or are traveling through and would like to meet us, we'd love it! Hope to see you soon! ~Jenn Casey
