#passvotes Welcome to the Nom Com: Here’s Your Helmet.

It’s been over a week since my last post on this subject, and to be honest, I was hoping that I wasn’t going to have to write any more.  I felt like I had stated my position that the Nominations Committee for the PASS elections of 2010 had been faced with an unpopular decision, and […]

#passvotes Interviews, interviews, interviews…

#passvotes The process rolls on…

I’m in a bit of a sticky wicket here; as a blogger, I feel obligated to share what’s going on with the Nomination Committee for the 2010 PASS elections, but as a member of that committee, I feel obligated to not say too much too soon.  However, I have seen some of the buzz on […]

English Interpreter of English #PASSvotes #sqlpass

In case you missed it, the call for nominations for the PASS Board of Directors went out yesterday; there are 3 seats that need to be filled this year, and PASS is trying to be very open about the nomination and electoral process this year.  I thought I would post a couple of links here […]

so it’s official: I’m a People Person. #PASSVote2010

I’ve been appointed to the PASS (Professional Association for SQL Server) Nominations Committee for the 2010 Elections for Board of Directors; as one of two volunteer (non-Board) members, my job is to provide some feedback to the other members on the pulse of the community. While I am deeply honored, I can’t help but feel […]
