Hey! We Got One Right!

Tuesday update: no new post today; see you again Wednesday.

As predicted Thursday on these very pages, Sergio Garcia is your 2017 Masters champ.  We'll readily admit that our call was based on rooting interest rather than analytics; we're just happy to see Sergio break through.  In other sports-rooting news, we loved seeing Irish War Cry bounce back on Saturday and we're getting gray hairs on account of the Nats bullpen.

On to the main event: here is your start-the-week set of jobs, the rest is up to you.  And, don't forget previously noted opportunities closing this week.

--Draft the Chair’s weekly email newsletter that keeps subscribers apprised of news updates, upcoming events and engagements.
--Hold trainings for those with less experience in social media realm—i.e., a strong ability and desire to teach others, including party activists, candidates and elected officials, on how these outreach tools can be used. Work with Finance team to identify fundraising and online engagement opportunities
--Stay up-to-date with the latest developments in digital media technology and online activism. Other tasks as assigned.
