Thanks to Eugene for passing this along.  If you are planning on attending, here is some additional info:

>> A few things you should know before you arrive.
>>
>> 1) All meetings and workshops will take place in the Miller-Morgan
>> building. If you are staying in a dorm room on campus, that will be in
>> the Benjamin Ruffin Residence Hall. You can locate both buildings on
>> the NCCU campus map at: http://www.nccu.edu/map/. For those staying in
>> the dorms, you will have pillow, towels, and linens provided.
>>
>> 2) If you plan to drive to NCCU, there is parking available near
>> the residence hall and the Miller-Morgan building.
>>
>> 3) If you are flying into Raleigh-Durham, be sure to plan your way
>> to campus. Details about public transit are on the NCGP website. For
>> those who can afford it, a cheaper taxi alternative is also listed on
>> their website, but reservations are required for this service.

>>
>> 4) If you purchased meals, tickets will be handed to you upon
>> registration. All meals will be buffet-style with vegan, vegetarian and
>> meat options. All meals will be served in the Pearson Dining Hall.
>>
>> 5) We believe there will be wireless internet access throughout the
>> campus. We think it is $2 per person per day and will put out a
>> donation jar to cover costs.
>>
>>
>> Some programming notes:
>>
>> We are really excited to announce that *Cynthia McKinney will be at the
>> Annual National Meeting*. A big thanks to the Black Caucus for
>> extending the invitation and finalizing the details. Cynthia will be
>> speaking on Saturday afternoon.
>>
>> We just got word last Thursday that Jesse Johnson will be bringing a new
>> film on the coal industry and mountain top removal. The film has not
>> yet been released to the general public and has only be shown in limited
>> venues. We are trying to find a venue and time to show this on campus
>> Friday and will have details when you get there if we are able to work
>> it in.
>>
>> Second, we will be holding a panel discussion on single-payer health
>> care Friday afternoon. This panel will be open to the public; Greens
>> have been publicizing the event locally so we can use this opportunity
>> to showcase Green values to a wider audience.
>>
>> Saturday night we have a really special event lined up featuring music
>> and light refreshments. “An evening with the North Carolina Green
>> Party” will be held at the Marvel Event Center in Durham. Tickets are
>> $15 in advance and $17 at the door. Details are at:
>> http://www.ncgreenparty.org/2009-ANM%20GREEN%20EVENING.html
>>
>> Finally, if you haven’t registered yet, we still want you to come!
>> Although there are no more dorm rooms available, you can find reasonable
>> rates at local hotels. You can also register on site for the meeting
>> itself for $160.
>>
>> We are really excited for the meeting and we hope to see you soon!
