Notes from the Trails --- Are you ready for FY16?

imageThis is my first NFTT in a few weeks.

My regular ride was in the shop and I was busy catching the last days of the Seattle summer on my Stand Up Paddle Board.

Today I'm sharing the best way for Microsoft partners to Connect, Learn and Grow their business. Whether you are an ISV, an SI or a Learning partner … the IAMCP has something for you.

As you may know the Microsoft Fiscal Year (FY) started on July 1 … we are now in FY16 in Microsoft speak. Are you ready? Join the IAMCP and be ready!

Are you in the Seattle Area?
Come to the next IAMCP meeting in your area. I am the president of the Seattle IAMCP chapter. We meet on the 3rd Thursday of every month --- our next meeting is Oct 15th at 11:30am in the Microsoft Civica offices in Bellevue. Join us --- the first meeting is free --- free lunch, free parking and free (but invaluable) information about partnering.

Not in Seattle? Not to Worry!

IAMCP has chapters all around the world. Find chapter in your region here (US) and here (Intl). For more details go to  or see the international site at and look for your local chapter. Or drop me a note here or at

I hope to see you at the next IAMCP meeting. If you have questions about partnering, partnering with Microsoft or developing alliances let me know.
