BC Liberal #InternArmy: Summer In Review

Our #InternArmy takes a look back at some of the highlights of their summer at the BC Liberal HQ.

1. We mastered our assembly line skills w/ #BCL14 delegate badge mail outs…

2. …but we had tons of fun in our very flattering yellow volunteer vests in Kelowna!

3. #InternArmy takes over the Leg — nbd.

4. We met Premier Christy Clark after the last QP of the spring legislative session.

5. There was the time we got to have a round table lunch with former PM Paul Martin (who provided valuable insight on First Nations issues)…

6. …as well as a luncheon seminar with free enterprise champion Stockwell Day.

7. We were very lucky to hear from Minister of Energy & Mines Bill Bennett (aka “Kootenay Bill”) who taught us valuable lessons on branding & campaigning.

You could hear a pin drop as @KootenayBill shared his experiences + advice w/ our @bcliberals #internarmy. #greatguy

8. Dimitri Pantazopoulos, the only pollster in Canada to predict the 2013 BC election correctly, gave us a valuable look into the world of polling & opinion research.

.@BCLiberals #InternArmy learning about public opinion research from the best in the business. Thx @DPinBC!

13. …then there were the low points, like World Cup month. The struggle — it was real.

I literally can't even “MT@_whitelock: @jawnbeary pretty down on Netherlands World Cup loss #lostbet #InternArmy ”

— Jonathan Barry (@jawnbeary)

ahem.. @bcliberals #internarmy RT @CBCNews 1m Does the World Cup kill productivity? http://t.co/BIfKPbm8ix

15. Then #InternArmy made our BCL Round Up & YouTube debut…

16. #InternArmy was always on the look out for new recruits. We found a few four-legged helpers. Introducing BC Liberals office dog #3…

Office dog wonders, are all these toys really necessary and which one is squeaky?
