Event description

Description

PRO/CON at The Pier is back for its third year! This event series is all about people hearing top experts debate passionately on important policy issues. The post-event reception is all about those experts getting together after that debate to settle their differences and celebrate their common ground over a drink. We invite you to join us for this VIP reception with our panelists, moderator, invited VIPs, and sponsors.

This post-debate VIP reception immediately follows the 6:30-7:30pm debate at the west end of the Pier, which immediately follows the 5:30pm DJ set with interactive booths (voter registration, soapbox speeches, voting on the topic, pop-up library, and more).

Who are the panelists and moderator and sponsors?

* Erik M.V. Hoek, PhD, Editor-in-Chief at npj Clean Water journal and Professor at UCLA Dept. of Civil and Environmental Engineering
* Tracy Quinn, MEng, Director, California Water Conservation & Efficiency, Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC)
* Toby Muresianu, Comedian, Host of Up Close and Political at the Hollywood Improv
* Representatives from Action Civics California, CA Secretary of State's Office, Santa Monica Public Library, ProCon.org, Santa Monica Pier, The Constituents, League of Women Voters Los Angeles, and more.

The program for the reception will be:

7:30pm check in and socialize and dine
8:00pm host welcome; toasts from moderator and panelists
9:00pm wrap up

ProCon.org is a nonprofit public charity so we are charging a nominal fee per ticket to cover costs for conducting this community event. We ask you to consider making a tax-deductible donation for additional support.

Where is it? What do I get with my ticket?

With your ticket, you will get access to our private 2nd floor Del Sol room at Mariasol, which is immediately adjacent to the debate venue. You get one drink ticket good for a classic margarita, beer, wine, sangria, or well drink. There's also unlimited soft drinks, coffee, hot tea, and water. Dinner is casual and self-serve. We'll have tortilla chips, salsa fresca, mixed greens salad, Mexican style rice, refried beans, cheese quesadillas, and chicken taquitos with avocado sauce.

For the first time, ProCon.org will be granting free ProCon.org membership to all reception guests. Our membership program is slated to start in September. Membership includes VIP seating and early bird purchase privileges for future events, early access to video content, invitations to conference calls with VIPs, free downloads of digital content including Notable Quotes and ProCon Placemats, controversial issue conversation guides, membership newsletter with research updates, and most importantly the joy of supporting the vital cause of critical thinking, education, and informed citizenship for millions of people. Your membership helps us continue to serve 25 million people every year, including more than 10 million students in more than 10,000 schools in all 50 states and 90 countries.

Anything else?
Tickets are very limited. One ticket per person. Dress is business casual. Please enter the second level room from the stairwell in front of the restaurant.

Thanks so much for your interest in PRO/CON at the Pier, hosted by ProCon.org and part of the Arthur N. Rupe Debate Series in LA. We hope to see you soon!
