A couple of months ago I started reading things about a new award that EMC would be doing much like the VMware vExpert award that VMware does. After some more reading I decided that I would nominate myself and see what happened. I had not heard anything back for a while, until Sunday when I received an email saying that I was one of the chosen few to receive the award this year! Needless to say I was pretty excited and started this blog post almost immediately LOL.
So what is EMC Elect ?
(from the official site)
EMC Elect is a community-driven recognition and thank you for individual’s engagement with EMC as a brand over the last calendar year.
Key Characteristics of an outstanding EMC Elect candidate include:
- Engagement – Members are those engaging here on the ECN, on Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn and in person at events.
- Commitment – Being a part of the EMC conversation day in and day out, offering thoughtful feedback and staying optimistic in your language.
- Leadership – The kind of people who take every opportunity to engage with their peers and represent others as part of the community.
For more information on what the program is check out the official site here:
What I think makes this really cool is that there are only75 awards TOTAL! So to be honored as one of them is pretty sweet!
Anyhow, I hope that I can keep up the posts that got me this award so that I can continue to share what I know in 2013.
Thanks again for reading!
