The election results were just posted. Congratulations to James Rowland-Jones, Wendy Pastrick, and Grant Fritchey for earning seats on the PASS Board of Directors for the 2015-2016 term. This will be the second term for both James & Wendy, so both will be building on two years hard won experience and I hope will do great things. Grant will be the newbie for a couple months and I look forward to hearing his voice about the journey and the challenges while he’s learns the ropes and beyond.

My friend Sri Sridharan was also running for re-election and came in fourth. I’m disappointed about that. I’ve known Sri since the early days of SQLSaturday and in my view there are few that have a deeper love of community and a sense of the possibilities than he does. He’s done a lot of good work in Dallas and he worked hard on the Board to get the volunteer management tools built and deployed. Once his term finishes in December I know he’ll find more ways to contribute.
