Join the PASS Summit 2010 Program Committee

Just in case you didn’t see it, we’re looking for volunteers for the 2010 program committee – the team that evaluates all the abstracts submitted which in turn leads to decisions about who gets on the schedule…and who doesn’t! It’s fairly intense work from what I’ve heard, but a great way to participate in the community. I’m not sure how the volunteer selection process works, but would assume that some DBA experience is required!

Details at http://www.zoomerang.com/Survey/WEB22A79RB8ZSZ.


I'm Andy Warren, currently a SQL Server trainer with End to End Training. Over the past few years I've been a developer, DBA, and IT Director. I was one of the original founders of SQLServerCentral.com and helped grow that community from zero to about 300k members before deciding to move on to other ventures.

I am curious how long it takes for them to make the decision on who gets to be on the committee or not.

I think this would be a great opportunity.

That's a good question.  Allen Kinsel is the volunteer that heads the Program Committee.  He's sqlinsaneo on twitter.  I'll ping him to see.

Just submitted my survey. I committed to help last year, and I'm following through. thanks for the reminder.

Spoke with Allen on Twitter and he said that a realistic date would be March 1st.

Thanks Jack, March first is the earliest I see this happening, especially since the number of applicants is moving towards 50 (we had 25ish last year).  I guess I should probably document how we chose members for the different Program committee teams.  Thanks for the idea.

Jason,   I see your application in the list, and its definetly a great opportunity if you have the time to spend.
