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.

How To Campaign For the PASS Board

Let’s say you’ve decided to run, good! What do you do next? I’m not going to give you a blueprint (I need to see if you have some game after all), but I have some suggestions that I think will help you run a better campaign and make it a better election too:

  • Build a campaign committee and pick a campaign manager – you need a group to bounce ideas off of, spell check your posts, and all the rest
  • Put a lot of effort into your application. Fill it out, review it, get other people to review it. It is, in effect, your resume.
  • Campaign on what you want to do and why. Figure out how to transmit that message effectively.
  • Build your network now. Revisit LinkedIn, ramp up your Twitter followers (and who you follow).
  • Go back and look at how the candidates campaigned last year. Who was most effective? Who has a style most like yours? Talk to someone what campaigned last year. What did they like or not like? What worked and what didn’t?
  • Start campaigning now. You don’t have to announce it officially, but you can start to write and tweet about things related to PASS – ideas, complaints, even fence mending if needed.
