Annual Report of COP for the year 2011-2012

Annual Report of COP for the year 2011-2012


Summary:   COP continued to provide a solid presence on Capitol Hill, making contact with all 535 offices.  295 presentations to staffers were made and four (4) major conferences were attended (CPAC,NRA, CBC, DPA).  Two major papers wrote editorials based on Howard’s bicycle trip and related activities.

Factors reducing COPs effectiveness and exposure were Howard’s stroke early in 2012 and his subsequent leave of absence to ride his bicycle across America.

Media exposure was constant through-out the year, especially at the annual CPAC event.  A YouTube video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aykf4437YTg was produced and seen by 18,000.  A Spanish version is planned.
