Last night was the first all-team planning meeting for our upcoming May 18th #SPSTC event. After nearly 3 hours of discussion over a packed agenda, we emerged tired but victorious! I’m most excited about some changes we’re making to this next event. We’ll be using brand-new classroom space at Normandale Community College for all our sessions. The new rooms have more space, offer better technology and are situated close to one another–thereby eliminating the speedwalking portion of our event. We’re also going to offer a community service opportunity for all attendees. This is part of our new focus on giving back…and giving back feels great!
What isn’t changing? Our focus on providing great content and networking opportunities for our attendees. We will still be running 8 concurrent sessions throughout the day, including tracks for Information Workers, IT Pros and Developers. We’ll also have sponsors on-site to provide walkthroughs of their tools/services.
If you’re interested in sponsorship opportunities for this event, please send an email to Sponsors@SharePointSaturdayMN.com. And keep an eye on our Facebook page for other event updates–including our upcoming call for speakers.
No post about #SPSTC would be complete without a shout-out to our leadership team. I can’t say enough about the enthusiasm, talent and hard work these folks bring to the table each and every day. We are one of the few organizing committees that consistently put on two SharePoint Saturday events per year–and this kind of effort comes with a personal cost. Please give Wes Preston, Jim Ferguson, Don Donais, Tamara Bredemus, Garon Rowland and Raymond Mitchell a “thank you” when you see them–they’re the best!
How about a shout out for you, too! Thanks for everythinbg you do to keep this going twice a year!
My thoughts exactly, callmevik. Everyone on the team makes pulling this thing together fun. Sarah gets us all moving in the right direction.
SPS is awesome! It’s a wonderful thing you are doing for the community!!
I have kind of a strange question, but….would you have a date picked out for the 2013 fall SPS? (I plan ahead 🙂
No date for that yet…
