As usual, I’m late to post this (seriously, do some of you people work?), but IBM has opened nominations for the 2015 IBM Champions for IBM Collaboration Solutions. What is the IBM Champions program? Per the IBM Champion homepage,
The IBM Champion program recognizes innovative thought leaders in the technical community — and rewards these contributors by amplifying their voice and increasing their sphere of influence. An IBM Champion is an IT professional, business leader, developer, or educator who influences and mentors others to help them make best use of IBM software, solutions, and services.
IBM Champions are not employees of IBM.
I have been HONORED to be an IBM Champion for ICS for this past year. The things that I do for the ICS community are the same things I would have done if I had not been an IBM Champion, and I tried to the best of my ability to live up to the designation.
Current IBM Champions have to be nominated again each year… we are not ‘grandfathered’ in. If you think someone should continue to be an IBM Champion, you have to nominate them again! Don’t assume someone else is going to do it.
If you feel like you have been helped by someone in the ICS community, honor them by nominating them! Just click here to get started: https://ibm.biz/NominateChamps – You do not have to fill in every field. Just fill in what you can and hit submit. It may not seem like much, but to those of us that get nominated, it means a lot! (By the way, you can also nominate yourself!)

Nominations for the 2015 IBM Champion program will be accepted through 5 PM Eastern on Wednesday, September 17th, 2014. Go nominate someone TODAY!!!
