I’m here training at an Obama 2012 office and am the only data training participant bringing her own laptop. This is crazy because I RSVP on My.barackobama.com and read the instructions. Though it is an ad-hoc environment but still be prepared! When I tell them that I volunteered for Obama since 2008 they all wooed. I’m learning that the canvassing have daily quotas. I’ve asked our trainer about getting my Votebuilder account transferred to Ohio when I return home in October. I’m calling the organizer about it because I will be ready! Also I’ve learned during my first training that the campaign has virtual phone bank allowing me to feed in Excel spreadsheet.
One of the people stays over because I tell the data instructor that I’ve registered online. Moocher! Anyway, I am glad that I’m taking this training because I want to do data mining. Lack of laptops seem to be problematic. Hello, people how do you register for data training but not bring a laptop? C’mon people get it together! In addition, I will speak with the organizer and sign up for a weekend event. I’ll do this to gauge whether or not I want to sign up for Obama’s Vote Corps (It must exclusive because not even our leader knows about it. When I mention it she gives a blank stare! Hey, I guess I do get something since I start registering in 2008. Early adopter status!). Next is the 201 intermediate data training class.
