PASS Community Connection

PASS Community Connection is an event sponsorship program designed to help professionals in the SQL Community Connect, Share and Learn. Community Connection events are full day, SQL Server focused learning events which help develop speakers, engage sponsors, and provide real world training.

The community can take advantage of the Community Connection Sponsorship Program in two ways: run a PASS Community Connection event, or engage PASS Community Connection to power an existing event.

Run a PASS Community Connection Event

If you are a PASS Chapter and you want to coordinate a full day event, PASS can help make your event easy to plan, and give you funding to make it a success. First, we will provide comprehensive funding based on projected attendee numbers, hours of technical content, and number of tracks. Second, we will email you a logistic kit with checklists, forms, and surveys you can use in the planning and execution process. Third, we will send you a mailed kit with attendee, speaker, and volunteer swag to properly brand your event.
