Welcome to the 2012 Health Freedom Congress!
The 2012 Health Freedom Congress will convene on June 14, 2012, bringing together 40 health freedom organizations from across the nation and their trusted leaders. The leaders will join together for a one day Congress in the round, followed by an evening health freedom awards banquet with keynote speaker Robert Scott Bell. The Congress will take place the day before the Chicago Health Freedom Expo, and is located at the same hotel. There are 60 seats available for Observers of this event.
The night before the Congress, all registered attendees are invited to a Meet and Greet Health Freedom Advocates networking event. This event will conclude with a special screening of Gary Null’s new 90-minute documentary titled The Power of Tyranny: Inside the FDA.
The 2012 United States Health Freedom Congress is the 7th national health freedom gathering hosted by NHFC, including: three National Health Freedom Conferences (2003, 2004, and 2005); the World Health Freedom Assembly (2006); the United States Health Freedom Assembly and Leadership Training (2007); and the Reconvening of the US Health Freedom Assembly (2008).
Similar to former Assemblies, the Congress will be facilitated by NHFC Moderators, Documentarians, and Parliamentarians. Voting members will be seated at tables in the format of a large circle, each table with microphone, to facilitate productive discussions in a face to face manner.
This Congress is being reconvened one day before the Chicago Health Freedom Expo 2012. We are delighted to be able to be part of the Expo experience.
How Many People Can Attend the Congress?
Original planning includes 40 Congress Voting Members seated in the Congress Round, and 60 additional chairs for Congress Observers. Additional accommodations will be negotiated if there is a need.
What is a Congress Voting Member?
NHFC has invited organizations promoting health freedom in the U.S. to be Congress Voting Members. These members will convene on June 14th and sit "in the round" where they will share their strengths and campaigns with each other and strategize ways to work together, strengthening the health freedom movement through unity and solidarity. Congress Voting Members will have the opportunity to vote on resolutions, as well as to submit potential resolutions prior to the Congress, and to contribute to the process of development of resolutions to ultimately be brought forward for deliberation.
What is a Congress Observer?
There are 60 seats available for Observers of this event. Observers will be seated in a circle directly behind and surrounding the Congress. Observers are welcome at the Meet and Greet, and they will have full observation access to the Congress proceedings. They will not have microphone access or be able to vote or to participate in the deliberations of the Congress unless requested to by the Congress itself. REGISTER NOW to join us at the Congress as a Congress Observer!
