Officially launching at MMS 2009 in Las Vegas is a new community program that will give influencers—user group leads, MVPs, popular bloggers, and others recognized as influential in the community around System Center—the technical training content, people connections, and general guidance they need to enhance their credibility and impact in the community.
Key Member Benefits
- Access key content: Members get access to the latest technical training content to help them enhance their expertise. This also includes exclusive user group content.
- Meet experts and peers in the community: Members can stay connected with System Center-focused events, or let others know about their upcoming events. Members can register and find events, as well as request speakers for upcoming meetings.
- Grow in influence: Members can learn about new opportunities to lead their communities on and offline, and find out about other opportunities to get more involved with Microsoft.
This invitation-only program has its online home on Microsoft Connect, and offers or links to several different tools intended to support influencer needs. As this is very much a work in progress that is just getting off the ground, we are asking participants to help us develop the program and shape it in ways that are most relevant to the community.
This program is intended for influencers of all kinds, or simply those who are looking for tools to become more influential in their communities. Our intention is not to supplant any existing influencer programs, such as the MVP program, but merely to complement and extend them, focusing specifically on the needs of the System Center (and soon: Virtualization) community.
