This event offers an incredibly unique opportunity to talk with someone from the inside of a presidential transition. Michael Slaby (bio below), worked on both Obama campaigns as CTO and CIO and the transition in 2009. He’s agreed to take time during this transition to give us a candid take on what actually happens when you win the presidency. He currently serves on a Biden 100-day committee, thankfully, he is not part of the Biden transition allowing him to speak freely. Bring your questions as there will be plenty of time for Q&A.
