PASS Events Highlight the Value of Community

Well another 24 Hours of PASS event has come and gone. At this point I am starting to view each of them as a parent would view a child; I don't have a favorite and I love each of them in a unique way. However, there is something that is common to each event and that is Community.

I have been involved with PASS since 2004 when I attended the PASS Summit in Orlando. Back then we did not have events such as SQL Saturdays, SQLRally, or even a 24 Hours of PASS. The Community has come a long way over the years and we are connected to each other even more now than ever before. We share stories easily, ask questions of each other frequently, and lean on each other daily.

The thing I most love about being part of PASS is the Community. The people that I interact with at PASS events are wonderful and caring. Whether virtual or in-person, PASS events underline the value of Community and togetherness. I am also fortunate to serve on the PASS Board of Directors, where feel I am able to move our Community forward by helping to champion events such as the latest 24 Hours of PASS and upcoming PASS SQLRally.
