J. Michael Smith, Esq., President of HSLDA
Virginia--Announcing the 2002 HEARTH Homeschool Conference

From the HSLDA E-lert Service...

March 18, 2002

Dear Virginia Members and Friends,

Home School Legal Defense Association thanks you for your loyalty and
partnership with us. Only by working together can we defending home
school freedom in Virginia and across the nation. As you know, HSLDA
has not raised its membership dues in over 15 years of operation.
We've been able to keep the cost of membership low because you--our
members--have spread the word about HSLDA to your home schooling
friends and family. In the face of steadily mounting legal and
operational expenses, the best way to keep our membership rates down
is to increase the size of our "family"--encouraging more home
schoolers to join together in the battle for freedom.

Toward that end, HSLDA is offering a special one-time incentive for
new members at the 2002 HEARTH Homeschool Conference. First-time
members who join at the conference receive $10 off their membership
in addition to any HSLDA group discount (15 persent off the
membership fee) and a free book.

In addition, current members can renew for two years at the
conference and receive a free book. Invite three of your friends to
come to the conference and sign up as new members--then you receive a
free year of membership!

The 2002 HEARTH Homeschool Conference will be held at the
Mountainview Church of Christ, 4118 Valley Pike, Winchester, VA, on
April 5 and 6. Congressional Action Program Manager Samuel Redfern
will be speaking on "What If My Whole Life Was in a Bag and That Bag
Got Left Behind?" and "How Can My Home Schooled Child Participate in

For more information about this event, please contact Bill Jennings
at 540-843-0684, e-mail, or visit

We look forward to seeing you and your friends at the 2002 HEARTH
Homeschool Conference! Please come by our table and say "Hi!"


J. Michael Smith
