Well I have to say I’m surprised. It’s always hard to get a rejection, and I’m not quite sure what to think of it.
I was rejected from the slate for the 2011 PASS Board of Directors, so I won’t be running this fall in the election.
I guess I’ll have more free time than I thought in 2011.
My rejection letter (relevant parts):
PASS is a volunteer organization. Volunteers who do much of the work for the community do so because they feel valued and appreciated. An effective board member must be able to work with volunteers from all levels of expertise and commitment. It is the board members responsibility to lead and encourage volunteers. While the NomCom continues to be impressed by your passion and support for the SQL Server Community, questions were raised during the interview regarding your ability to effectively work with volunteers in an executive capacity. The limited work you had on PASS committees was a factor in the NomCom’s decision.
