Moments later, through a series of emails, I discover that the aforementioned “invitation” is closer to an order – I was “volunteered” as a participant by the CIO. So at this point I feel like I am stuck and pissed for being treated that way but I let it go.
Today was day one of the two day conference and I learn the following:
- It’s not a conference but a 13 hr course
- it was actually an honor to be selected
- it was freaking awesome and I can’t wait until tomorrow’s session.
