The IT Professionals Advisory Council is extending membership
to Developers. In September 2007 the Council will be renamed
the IT Advisory Council in light of the inclusion of both Developers
and other IT Professionals. Thus, Microsoft would like to ask you
to invite your friends and colleagues to join the Council to share
their views, ideas and opinions with us to help Microsoft understand
how we can better serve you.
If you know any IT Professionals or Developers who might be
interested in joining the Council, please forward this invitation on
to them. They will need to answer the same questions that you have responded previously to ensure the Council is relevant to them. Alternatively, you can email us their details, and we will get in contact with them. We would like to receive your colleagues’ details during September and they will be contacted by the end of October.
The IT Advisory Council is a select group of IT Professionals and Developers, which purpose is to share your views, ideas and opinions, helping Microsoft shape future initiatives. As a member, you will play
an integral part in providing us with feedback on Microsoft customer offerings, licensing, support, marketing materials and community
Members will communicate with us via an online portal and a program
of face-to-face and online events. Each event is currently limited to
12 members to ensure rich discussion and you will be eligible to
participate based on a point-system on our portal. Membership also involves completing a monthly online 'task', which can be completing a mini-survey or sharing your experiences on our portal forums and blogs
to help Microsoft understand what it's like to be in your shoes.
Presently, there are more than 200 members in New York, Chicago, Toronto and the UK, and we are currently opening up further
membership both in current locations and worldwide, so if you wish
to secure a position, please apply now. To do this you will have to complete few questions, which should take 10 min, to ensure this
Council is relevant to you.
Please send us your details at firstname.lastname@example.org
, and we will get in touch with you in the following weeks.
Thanks for your time and your support.
