PASS Summit Volunteers Needed

Well, we are coming around into a new year.  With this new year there is once again PASS Summit preparations that are well under way.  Time has come again for people to volunteer to help with PASS Summit.  The call has gone out!!  Allen Kinsel has blogged about it here.

For those that haven’t volunteered or helped in the past, it doesn’t require too much and there are many ways in which you can help.  Assistance is needed from abstract review to speaker ratings to some database work to being an usher during the Summit.  PASS has put together a little survey to help you in volunteering for the Summit 2011.  You can find the survey here.

So what do you get by volunteering to help at PASS?  You get a sense of accomplishment for having helped, in whatever miniscule way, to put on a pretty big Conference for the best Community out there – the SQL Server Community.  I liked helping out last year and have volunteered again.  I hope to be selected and wouldn’t mind doing something different this year.  On the flip-side, I wouldn’t mind doing the same things I did last year.

I know, this wasn’t much of a motivational speech.  Hopefully this works better for you – JUST DO IT.

    I have already volunteered for it. They will let me know if I am selected or not. But if I can volunteer with no experience and no brand name, rest of the people too can volunteer for it.

    • Jason Brimhall says:

      I concur. It should make no difference how little or how much brand or experience you bring to volunteer. Many of the volunteer opportunities require no special skillset other than the willingness to help.

  • @DBA_ANDY: Making copy of table w/o PERSISTED column brings CHECKTABLE back down to "normal" - this fixes it but why is it happening? #sqlhelp (3/3)
  • @DBA_ANDY: at but it talks about indexes on computed columns - I don't have any indexes/stats on the columns #sqlhelp (2/3)

  • @TossingRazors: #sqlhelp Do u trust server backup products to do SQL backups? (With their SQL plugins not just snapshot backups?) NetBackup, Veeam, etc

  • @capnsue: @SQLSoldier awesome thank you. I'm in simple recovery mode though - does that make a difference? #sqlhelp
