We've had some fantastic speakers give the group a 10min introduction to topics at the past two meetups. Does anyone have a recommendation for this topic? Someone involved in political fund raising would be great.
Please post links to books / articles in the comments.
In the spirit of having "book club" in our title, here is a podcast related to the topic :)
We're a friendly group more focused on education than honing debate skills. Devil's advocates are encouraged.
We usually meet at Taco Mac at Lindbergh, and try to start around 7:30 - 7:45. Come at 7:00 if you want to order food. We'll likely meet there for this one unless we get too many people.
There's an optional $1 charge for the meetup to help cover the meetup.com costs, which are $144 / year.
