With the Elections now complete, the PASS Board of Directors met for their in-person board meeting at PASS Summit 2016 yesterday in Seattle.

Last year, we announced portfolio assignments for the Directors-at-Large following the Summit board meeting. However, at this time, no assignments will be made to allow for the Executive Committee to undertake the annual strategic planning process later this year.  We’d like to thank the community for their understanding and patience as we finalize our planning, as this is a change from previous years.

This planning process will give the Executive Committee the necessary time and capacity to consider the financial planning requirements for 2017 and also to evaluate portfolios against the priorities of the organization.

Current board members will continue to lead their portfolios until the end of this year and will support transitions to incoming board members. While Argenis Fernandez will be vacating his board seat at the end of this year, he will continue to assist with the SQLSaturday portfolio transition.

We’ll have more news from PASS Summit 2016 throughout the week, so stay tuned to the blog and follow #sqlsummit and #sqlpass on Twitter.
