Notes from the Trails - Congratulations to the new IAMCP US Board from Jeff Shuey on Vimeo.

Ro, as the incoming president has already taken steps to kick things into gear. Including using Office 365, SharePoint and OneDrive for Business for storing, sharing and showcasing the great job partners are doing.

As for me, I am transitioning my role of MarCom to Jon Rivers. Fresh thinking and fresh ideas are always a good thing. Jon has a lot of organizational energy and a lot of expertise in social engagement and partnering.

I look forward to seeing how Ro, Jon and the rest of the board shift the IAMCP to the Cloud and Beyond.

These are exciting times for partners. There are a lot of options to choose from. The IAMCP is a place where partners can connect with other partners, can share best practices and can find out about deals they might not otherwise be aware. (see my post on Partnering with IAMCP). The IAMCP is focused on insuring partners Connect, Learn and Grow.


The IAMCP is also very actively involved in community engagement efforts and with the Microsoft Worldwide Partner Conference. A few of the most active areas are listed below. If you are involved with them already … fantastic. If not, please think about joining the IAMCP and getting involved.


The Past Sets the Pace for the Future

A Big Thank You to Jon Sastre. He is the Immediate Past President of the IAMCP US. His efforts to help define how chapters grow, interact and accelerate are to be commended.
