Here’s my wish list:
- Fix the membership problem. One voter, one vote. That’s what we want. The current hack of requiring an updated profile is just that, a hack. Fixing this, making sure that elections are solid and that members have one permanent PASS identity leads to all kinds of good things.
- Skip the speaker bureau and go big, build a not for profit technical speakers and writers association, one that at least serves the Microsoft space and ideally the entire technical space. And yes, build a conference to go with it. Spin it off with its own Board once built.
- Create a PASS University to train and continuously educate volunteers and leaders. Online classes plus in person seminars, and no, it won’t be be cheap – why would we want it to be?
- Build a BI Conference. Does it replace BAC? I don’t think so, but I’m sure there is a market for it
Big dreams, or not big enough? Got better ones?
