SQL Server DBA Tips & Tricks


Changing of the Guard

A few weeks ago Andy Leonard (Blog | Twitter) announced that he was stepping down from his position as PASS Regional Mentor. It is with great humbleness and excitement that I can officially say I’ll be taking on the role of PASS Regional Mentor for the Greater Southeast region.

I’d like to say a huge thank you to Andy for giving me this great opportunity and I hope to make the best of it. Thank you for all the hard work you’ve put in to the position, you’ve set a high bar! Until now the RM position has been mainly used as a resource for chapter leaders to help them in whatever way is needed. In the coming weeks you should start hearing more about new ideas and directions the RM program is hoping to take. Recently I was in Orlando with Jessica Moss (Blog | Twitter) and we got to speak a bit about the program and shared some ideas on how we can improve the program and make it more beneficial for chapter leaders and the community at large.

In addition to myself there are a few more new RM’s that have been named. Please welcome the following new RM’s as well:

Patrick LeBlanc (Blog | Twitter) – U.S. South Central Region

Matthew Rigling (Blog | Twitter) – U.S. Heartland Region

Melissa Demsak (Blog | Twitter) – U.S. Northeast

Adam Jorgensen (Blog | Twitter) – U.S. Great Southeast Region
