Hi Everyone,

This is my first day back in the office after attending the Partner Program Manager Summit. I enjoyed my time at the summit and have a lot of new ideas, I am also looking forward to working with you all over the next 18 months as we evolve the Microsoft Partner Program to the Microsoft Partner Network. 

I would like to thank everyone who has sent me emails asking for the Advanced Competency requirements, it is great to see so many of you wanting to  get an early start on meeting the requirements for the Advanced Competencies.  At this point in time I do not have these to share with you, our Microsoft Team in the USA are still finalising the Advanced Competency Requirements as I type this blog update.  I hope to share these with you late November early December timeframe.

I would also like to take this opportunity to remind you that a large number of exams are expiring over the next 12 months please visit the Partner Portal Program Membership tab to ensure you meet the new exam requirements.

If you have any feedback or questions around the Microsoft Partner Network please feel free to blog them.

Sarah
