The end of summer is near. As county fairs start to wrap up and parents have printed the school supply list, I realized I never posted about all the fun our CHQ family had at the Brooklyn Flag Festival.
Our town’s yearly celebration is a good time for us to come together and celebrate everything Brooklyn has to offer and have fun at the same time!
This year CampaignHQ was proud to sponsor the pony rides!
Come check it out next year – the 2nd Saturday in June.
If you’re not following CampaignHQ on Facebook, well you’re behind the times and missing out on all kinds of fun updates.
Most recently, the Chief Canine Officer Waffles, has taken over the CHQ Facebook page to share the many faces of #CHQpets. At CHQ we really are a family and that includes our furry family members so we decided to celebrate our littlest members.
We’re so happy to be adding to our CampaignHQ family! In July, Morgan Bonwell joined the CampaignHQ team with several years of experience as an on-the-ground campaign operative. She has previously served as a clerk in the Iowa House of Representatives, a field organizer for the Republican Party of Iowa and a Regional Field Director for the Indiana Republican Party.
We’re so pleased to add Morgan to our CampaignHQ family. The experiences she’s previously managed through her campaign work will provide a unique perspective to help overcome any challenges our may clients face.
Morgan and her husband have one newborn child.
Please join me in welcoming Morgan to our CHQ family!
The most celebrated day at CampaignHQ is almost here – The HQ Awards!
For the fifth year in a row, our team will join together for a night of fun, celebration, door prizes, great food and recognizing all of the accomplishments of the past year.
Our CampaignHQ employees are known across the country for their legendary
customer service. We’re so happy to be able to set aside one night and really showcase all the hard work this team has done over the course the year.
Gold, silver and bronze awards will be given in four categories and are based on a variety of successful call pledges and fundraising achievements, including:
Overcoming Objections Award
Double Credit Award
The Monthly Award
The Combo Award
Be sure to check back later this month for more updates on the winners. We can’t wait to celebrate our talented employees!
I’m thrilled to be participating in another exciting event on the national level. In August, I will be joining several talented campaign strategists at the American Association of Political Consultant’s seminar on effective texting and communications.
From AAPC’s site:
You know peer-to-peer texting is an effective way to reach your voters and constituents. In this seminar, we’ll talk about how to get the results you want. We’ll discuss creative uses of SMS and MMS, sharing links, and harnessing the power of interactive conversation to drive results. Get ready to pack a big punch in just 160 characters.
The second quarter of the year brought a return to reading fiction.
I’ve recently grown frustrated with most business books. They seem to fall into two categories:
1. They are published by business coaches trying to broaden their reach and win new clients.
2. They are university professors who know exactly what you SHOULD do, but of course they’ve never done it themselves. Both come across with the same result.
They are SO preachy … as if you would just immediately change everything to do it their way, and it would result in an unprecedented windfall of profit and employee happiness. And frankly, if you are going to be that bossy, at least you should have something useful to say. Too many times, it’s a rehash of the same old thing.
Thus, my return to fiction, and a welcome diversion from everyday challenges.
Well, I know I’ve been keeping you all waiting – it’s been a while since I’ve come at you with some book reviews. In my defense, I’ve taken on some heavy reading this year, favoring quality over quantity with just 19 books under my belt.
Summer is when authors often release their “beach reads” … otherwise known as books that don’t require much brainpower. I encourage you to take the road less traveled and read something that will make YOU better this summer.
