Here are my top 5 tasks:
Task 1: Strengthen all Virtual Chapters by having global representation
I would also work with the Virtual Chapter leaders to grow their volunteer teams to include volunteers and leaders from other geographical regions. These leaders can then reach out to SQL Server professionals in their communities that might not be near a local chapter, but would like to connect, share, and learn with others in the field. I believe this will not only strengthen the virtual chapter, but also PASS as a whole through the networking and knowledge sharing of the community at large.
Task 2: Encourage more interaction among Virtual Chapter members
One of the items missing with Virtual Chapters is the presence of a forum or chat room, available after a session,etc., where one can share further insights or experiences on a particular topic.
Task 3: Enable searching capability for all PASS VC sessions
Work with PASS IT to develop the capability to search across all VC sessions. Today. it is difficult to search for sessions across the Virtual Chapters that might be of interest. I would work with other VCs and PASS IT in adding this type of search to its web presence.
Task 4: Partner with Business Analytics initiatives
The Business Intelligence Chapter and the Business Analytics Chapter have partnered together well this past year. I would like to see this partnership continue to grow and strengthen. This includes partnering more with our Excel Community Brothers and Sisters, as well as with Big data vendors, etc.
Task 5: Strengthen the BAC and Summit program selection process.
The program selection process has evolved into a structured and repeatable process. It would be my goal to continue to see this process evolve to be more fluid during the scheduling phases, as well as in the selection phase. To accomplish this, I would work closely with PASS HQ and IT to enhance the software and reports being used to be more aligned with the process flow and assist more in the scheduling aspects. This would benefit PASS by having a process and supporting software that can be leveraged by any size or type of conference, including SQLSaturday, SQLRally, BA Conference, and Summit.
