Supporting the PASS Community

It has been a busy few weeks at PASS as PASS HQ and the Board have been working on all the ways that we can support our community as everyone adjusts to the current global situation. We are all challenged by sweeping changes to the way we work, connect, and collaborate, and I am truly proud of everything PASS is doing for our community.

Perhaps the most obvious change for PASS in recent weeks are the 30+ SQLSaturdays that have made the decision to cancel or postpone their upcoming events. The team at PASS HQ has been working diligently to support these many events, field a multitude of questions, and to provide alternative options. We are making special considerations when re-scheduling event dates, as we aim to provide our dedicated event organizers with as much flexibility as we can. We are also offering a temporary virtual option starting with SQLSaturday events originally scheduled to take place in late March and throughout April, to pilot the initiative. We know that connecting, sharing, and learning in-person is important, and right now we have a unique opportunity to support our members in new ways, bringing people together and sharing the magic of the PASS community from the comfort of your home when you need it the most.

PASS Regional Mentor Program Re-Launched

For those who are not already familiar, the PASS Regional Mentor Program supports a team of passionate volunteers who are committed to the engagement, mentorship, and support of PASS Community Leaders and members of their respective regions across the globe. This program has been in place for several years, and it was time to re-visit the eligibility requirements, nomination & selection process, term duration, and responsibilities of the role. Over the past several months, the PASS HQ Community Team has worked closely with members of the PASS Board to re-develop the program, as well as collaborated with existing Regional Mentors for their feedback.

It's that time of year again; PASS is looking for new leaders to join the Board. You might be asking why you should consider running for a Board seat when you already have a full-time job and a ton of other commitments. I mean, let's face it, attending Board meetings and taking on the responsibilities of a Board member adds to your already busy calendar.

As a sitting Board member, I can tell you that this is time well spent. I have gleaned valuable insights around patience, organizational financial responsibility, and increased knowledge and passion for the community in which we serve.
