PRG/X-Conference Report - Part II - May 10, 2005

Thank Yous

PRG wishes to express its appreciation to the volunteers who
made the X-Conference possible: Tom Baxter, Jan Bennett, Ken
Birnie, Jim Boka, Bill Brown, Laurie Elms, Francis Knize, Marina
Diamond-Heart, Tom Mattingly, Sharon Pacione, Suzanne Riordan,
Sandy Young and Jim Young. If someone is left out here, let us
know.

And a special thanks to the artists who help provide some
wonderful ambiance: R. J. Bachman, Betty Plummer, Yancy Spence
and Dr. Julie Walker. [Note: if you know of an artist whose work
blends well with the issues and themes of the conference, please
refer them to PRG.]

And, of course, let us not forget the musical contributions of
Bruce and Ashley Maccabee - a most appreciated developing
tradition along with that of the co-hosting of former CNN
anchor, Cheryll Jones.

X-Conference 2005 by the Numbers (Numbers in parentheses are for
2004)

Total Attendance: 420 (630)

Demographics:

 - 30 (31) states [AZ, CA, CO, CT, DC, DE, FL, GA, HI, IL, KS,
 LA, MA, MD, MI, MO, NC, NJ, NM, NY, OH, OR, PA, RI, SC, TN, VA,
 WA, WI, WV]

Speakers/Panelists: 26 (25)
Banquet: 220 (350)
Press Passes: 70 (44)
Documentary Teams: 7 (7)
Banner Links: 82 (97)
Financial Loss (gross): $29,074 ($27,443)
Honoraria paid to speakers (both conferences): $26,000
Honoraria still owed to speakers: $24,600

Notes:
(1) Approximately half of the 2005 loss has been covered by
generous contributions to PRG from a number of sources. Some of
these sources wish to remain anonymous, but PRG thanks Graham
Bethune, Jim Boka, Lisa Davis, James Deardorff, Marina Diamond-
Heart, Rebecca Gordon, Rob Gordon, Richard Jones and John
Miller. Apologies to anyone left out. These do not include
contributions to X-PPAC, which are being sorted out.

(2) PRG will continue to expand its contribution base and
intends to set up a 501(c)(3) PRG Foundation later in 2005 to
allow for tax deductible contributions. PRG will pay all
outstanding honoraria in full.

(3) While PRG appreciates contributions from X-Conference
speakers, let it be clear it is PRG's role to provide resources
to speakers - not the other way around. PRG will continue to
support researchers/activists by providing honoraria; promoting
their books and websites; providing media exposure; and
supporting documentary productions with referrals and
interviews.

(4) When, not if, PRG receives the major funding the issues in
question appropriately require, this funding will be moved
quickly into the community to support the multiplying research
and activism which will inevitably lead to the end of the truth
embargo.
