If I do decide to register, I don't know if I should put myself in the beginner or the advanced track. I've never been through a training like this before, but otoh I have done a LOT of volunteering including planning/organizing and taking on a lot of responsibilities. Maybe that makes me advanced, I don't know.
Also - they want registrants to paste their resume onto the registration form. I never thought of creating an activist resume. Not even a hint of a thought! But I do have experience that could be turned into one, I suppose. Will y'all please advise me on how to start drafting an activist resume? That would be awesome!
Zerbe: you may not have attended any trainings, but you're a natural from what I've been able to determine. I always love to say there are two types of learning - street and academic. In my opinion - the street education often surpasses the academic. Go for it!
However, one warning. HRC is an organization with a history of going for the lowest common denominator. The ENDA situation being just the most recent time when they sold out our T family. I personally don't have a lot of trust in them. But I'm probably a distinct minority in the gay & lesbian community. From what I know the T community pretty much feels the same as I do about HRC. Kara
