I received the following email the other day:


We would like to extend our thanks for your participation in the INETA Community Champion program and your commitment to the developer community.  You faced some challenging competition yet your accomplishments speak for themselves.  The Community Champion team is thrilled to inform you that you are one of our top ten winners for Q3 2008.  Congratulations Jason!   

INETA will be announcing the winners this week in our November INETA Newsletter as well as posting announcements on our web site.  At your earliest convenience, please send us a photo and bio for permanent placement on the INETA Community Champion honors list.  The list will be formatted similar to the Speakers list (see for an example). 

Besides the photo and bio, we need your shipping address, the full name you would like us to use on the award certificate and which one of the following prizes you would like to receive:

· MSDN Professional Subscription (download)

· Xbox 360

· $300 Gift Check

As a winner of this annual award, you will not be eligible to win again until Q3 2009, however we encourage you to continue entering your community related activities.  These entries can be used as an effective tool to show what you have accomplished.  This in itself could be highly beneficial.

The Community Champion team is continuously enhancing the system.  One of the first changes we implemented was the ability to allow you to enter an activity and apply it to multiple dates.  And just recently we added a new Silverlight tool to make the process of entering submissions even easier.  We’re sure that you can think of a few other enhancements you would like to see.  Jason, we value your feedback in helping to create a better online experience so please contact us any time with your comments/critiques.

Best Regards,

INETA Community Champion Team

INETA – “The Face of .NET”


This was extremely exciting for me as I have been working very had with the Bartlesville .NET User Group, speaking engagements for TulsaTechFest and the Tulsa .NET User Group, planning a GiveCamp for Oklahoma, volunteering for the upcoming WeAreMicrosoft event, mentoring speakers and developers, as well as being a husband and parent to 4 kids.  It was rewarding to see that my labors were appreciated!  All you Dot Netters out there sign up at INETA and get involved in your local communities, you really can make an impact and make the .NET world better.
