At the January oPASS meeting in Lake Mary, it was announced that the chapter would be creating a Board of Directors to help distribute some of the responsibility of running the chapter, and involve more people in the #SQLFamily. The board will also help in planning the Orlando SQL Saturday, held annually each fall. There were four Board positions available for the taking:

  • Program Director
  • Membership/Marketing Director
  • Webmaster/Communications Director
  • Treasurer

All four positions were filled, and I am quite pleased to announce that I volunteered for the Program Director position. Here is my new description within the Chapter:

  • Speakers
    • Seek out and invite potential speaker candidates
    • Review candidates abstracts for appropriateness and quality of training for user group
    • Confirm with selected speaker date availability
    • Provide selected speaker with all necessary information
      • Meeting  location
      • Directions
      • Hotel info
    • Create and collect speaker evals from attendees at each meeting
  • Meetings
    • Handle meeting space reservation
    • Arrange food order and pickup or delivery to arrive at meeting by 6:30

So without further ado; If you are a speaker, and will find yourself in the Orlando area over the course of the next twelve months, I would like to talk to you. We will be lining up speakers for a the upcoming oPASS chapter meetings, at a minimum of three months in advance.

We all have some really good ideas on where to take the Chapter in the future, and there are some exciting things coming down the pipeline. Stay tuned, 2012 is going to be a great year to be in oPASS, and the #SQLFamily!
