Community Zone

Learn how to get involved in the #SQLCommunity year-round by talking with PASS Community Evangelists, Chapter and Virtual Chapter leaders, and SQLSaturday organizers in our popular Community Zone. Find out how to join a local PASS Chapter or Virtual Chapter - or how to start your own user group, Virtual Chapter, or SQLSaturday event directly from our successful volunteers.

Country/Language Spotlights
Interested in meeting with a chapter leader from your region or who speaks your native language? Check out our Country/Language Spotlight schedule below to meet up with them. We’ll have English-speaking volunteers at all times, and volunteers who speak a variety of languages - to see the Community Leaders & Volunteers for a specific hour at the Community Zone, see here.
