Yesterday's Advanced Finance Training Seminar with Rachel Hirschberg
was great (if I do say so myself). Having been working in political and non-profit fundraising for 15 years, Rachel was able to give the participants valuable "real life tips" to help them forge ahead in their finance careers.
Joining Rachel was Johanna Berkson from the DCCC to not only share her experience, but give insider tips from the frontline congressional races.
I sat through the whole 2 hours wishing I'd been able to attend this session when I was starting my finance career. Just hearing about the difference between the "Cadillac Plan" (which is everyone's goal), and reality was so helpful.
From how to manage call time to working with your campaign manager, Rachel's insight was helpful, interesting and often very funny.
One of the participants, Joel Z. noted after the seminar: "It was great to hear and compare issues and concerns similar to my own experiences from the panel and participants. It clarified and solidified much of what I learned working in finance during the last cycle and I'm excited to find my next race and start fighting again."
I would like to personally thank Rachel and Johanna and all of the participants for joining us. I very much hope to bring more of these "small group discussion training seminars" to our members throughout this year. So, stay tuned...
