Andy Warren posted a summary of how he saw the PASS Board Meeting that recently took place. If you’re a volunteer for PASS, I’d strongly suggest going over and reading it.
SQLBatman also posted on this a few days ago. It’s absolutely worth a read too.
As a volunteer, I have to say, I really enjoy having some knowledge of what’s going on, the processes behind the decisions, and the intent of those decisions. This knowledge makes it easier to maintain a level of enthusiasm that will help to keep me involved. I’m sure it’ll work the same way for others.
By the way, helping the community is one reason to get involved, but an even better reason is the great people you’ll have an opportunity to work with.
