TEMPO Madison
As you know, the November lunch has traditionally been reserved for the annual TEMPO Holiday Bazaar.
This year on November 8, TEMPO will be transforming its holiday event into one that celebrates and showcases the members of TEMPO.

That means you!

We want to feature you in the first-ever TEMPO Shares, A Not-so Silent Auction. [Background on why we're doing this amazing new event is in the last newsletter - you can read it here.]

Consider sharing something of yourself with fellow TEMPO members. There is no question that by virtue of being a member of TEMPO you have remarkable professional skills as well as personal interests that you can donate for a price to benefit the charitable work of the TEMPO Foundation. We're asking you to support the TEMPO Shares, A Not-so Silent Auction by sharing what you do and what you know.

Sharing what you do and what you know may mean:
  • Offering mentoring advice that reflects your professional expertise, be it corporate board service, marketing, executive recruiting, estate or financial planning;
  • Holding an event that showcases your passion for sushi making, wine tasting, gardening, prairie restoration or the arts;
  • Sharing your love of life through tennis lessons, a round of golf, a lunch with one of your prominent connections, or a weekend rental of your vacation home; or
  • You choose your muse. If it is something that excites you, we know that TEMPO members will be excited by it, too!
Then, get ready to bid on one-of-a-kind services and experiences offered by the fabulous women of TEMPO to benefit our future -- all while networking and enjoying a sumptuous buffet.

TEMPO's November luncheon has traditionally focused on making a difference in our community. This year's luncheon, TEMPO Shares, A Not-so Silent Auction expands that mission to:
  • Highlight TEMPO members' professional expertise and personal passions
  • Provide more opportunities to get to know fellow members
  • Raise funds for our charitable TEMPO Foundation
  • Raise funds for women in need through TEMPO's No Strings Attached
  • Help each other do better in business and have more fun

Proceeds from the silent auction will support the TEMPO Foundation; contributions (anonymous or otherwise) of any amount will be welcome for TEMPO's "No Strings Attached" - and we'll have a few fun calls to action throughout the luncheon for same. Need to know more about "No Strings"? Consider attending the upcoming welcome briefing for members who are curious about this great initiative.

The success of the TEMPO Shares, A Not-so Silent Auction relies on the creativity and generosity of our members - yup, that means you; and our goal is to include each of you.

Submit the form attached by October 20 and show that you care about advancing women in our community through TEMPO Shares.

Charles Franklin - The 2016 Elections in Wisconsin and the Nation



Join us Tuesday, December 13 to hear Charles Franklin present The 2016 Elections in Wisconsin and the Nation.  Please plan to meet at The Madison Club at 11:30 for networking; lunch will be served at 11:55 a.m. 

The 2016 campaign has provided more than the usual surprise and drama of an election year. What are the divisions among voters and how do these divides structure political conflict in Wisconsin and in the nation?  Drawing on data from the Marquette Law School Poll of Wisconsin and national polling plus other data, Professor Franklin provides a look at the state of public opinion and vote preference that structured the November elections in both presidential and congressional elections.

Charles Franklin is Professor of Law and Public Policy at Marquette Law School, where he directs the Marquette Law School Poll. Since its inception in 2012 the poll has correctly predicted the outcomes of 11 out of 11 statewide elections. The Marquette Law School poll is widely cited as one of the most reliable polls in the nation.  Since it began in 2012 the poll has been cited in over 10,000 news articles and more than 25 hours of television news coverage.

While the poll is known for its accuracy in predicting elections it has also focused on state budget issues, economic issues in the greater Chicago megacity running from Milwaukee through Chicago to northwestern Indiana, the role of public libraries in Wisconsin and the value of technical training in the workforce.

In 2005 Franklin co-founded, an award winning website for the analysis of polling data. The site received the “Innovators Award” in 2006 from the American Association for Public Opinion Research, was featured in the New York Times Magazine’s “Year in Ideas” of 2007, was cited by graphics author Edward Tufte (tuff-Tee) for best visualization of the 2008 election and by Time magazine as one of the 50 Best Websites in 2008. In 2010 the Huffington Post acquired Pollster.

Franklin was Professor of Political Science at the University of Wisconsin Madison for 22 years before leaving to join the Marquette Law School. He is past president of the Society for Political Methodology and an elected Fellow of the Society. He is also a recipient, with his wife and co-author Liane Kosaki (lee-ann co-sock-ee) of the “Lasting Contribution Award” of the American Political Science Association Law and Politics section. Since 2002 he has been a member of the ABC News election night Decision Desk.
