IDUG is a volunteer run organization. In order to appropriately recognize excellent work from our many IDUG volunteers, the Volunteer Management Committee of the Board of Directors is now accepting nominations for IDUG Volunteer of the Year. If you have seen exceptional effort, exemplary work, or outstanding performance from an IDUG Volunteer, please send the specifics to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Have you ever thought of serving on the IDUG Board of Directors? Do you know someone who might?
The IDUG Board of Directors is responsible for setting the overall strategy for our organization, and coordinating the activities of our various volunteer teams around the world. We are beginning the process of putting together the 2011/2012 slate, and would like to invite nominations for a role on next year’s Board of Directors. This is a great opportunity to help shape the organization and grow the worldwide DB2 community.
If you have a clear vision for IDUG’s future, can think strategically as well as tactically and are passionate about IDUG’s mission, we want to hear from you! If you know of someone else who fits these criteria and would like to nominate them, that’s fine too!
