Note from Lars
Thanks for tuning in to Pollen Volume 63. We're very excited for this volume for a couple of reasons. First, we'd like to announce our new editorial assistant, Hannah Ehlenfeldt! Hannah will be working on putting content together for each volume of Pollen, as well as editing and writing features.
Secondly, the results of the Pollen Poll are in! Thank you all so much for your enthusiastic responses. We had 317 individual responses in all—wow! You can check out the findings below, as well as some of our favorite responses from the open ended questions. It's going to be an interesting next week as we wait for election results!
On top of that, we also have an editorial feature, "How Corporations Make A Difference In Politics," about corporate political activism and the influence corporations have on elections by Noah Rouen, founder and president of The Rouen Group.
And finally, our friends at The Collaborative are offering a 50% discount to Pollen members for their upcoming Healthcare Reform Series event featuring Rep. Erik Paulsen; Dr. Stephen Oesterle; Dr. Susan Alpert; leaders from Blue Cross Blue Shield, RedBrick, OptumHealth, Lemhi Ventures and more. To receive the discount, you must enter "Pollen" in the Registration Note on the registration form.
As always, we're also bursting at the seams with job openings, success stories of Pollenites, and great events and stories submitted by Pollenites. Please send us your Pollen shares for volume 64 by November 13.
P.S. November 15 is Give to the Max Day, a day for Minnesotans to come together to raise millions of dollars for thousands of nonprofits and schools in 24 hours. New this year is the option to schedule donations in advance, so no reason to miss out on this special day!
