Call for Applications: MCT Regional Leads, Round 2
Hi everyone! Can you believe it’s been a year since Melissa Bathum and I started the MCT Regional Lead program? We have been honored to work with all the current Regional Leads (RLs), and thrilled to see so many more applications pouring in from all over the world. This program is working and growing because of your active participation, whether you’re serving as RLs or rallying around them.
For those new to this, the MCT Regional Lead program was created to identify community members in each major marketplace worldwide to serve as a representative in their regions, a point of contact for other MCTs, and act as a liaison with Microsoft Learning and various Microsoft business groups. Our goal is to develop a team of global leaders who can drive stronger connections within their local community. We are interested in hearing from any current MCT located anywhere in the world, focusing on any technology, new or old (in tenure), who is both passionate about being an MCT, and interested in working within their region to get their communities active in training and events. For more details, please read Melissa’s call-for-application post last year.
Want to get involved? Now is the time to act. While the application form on MCT Central is open all year, the cut-off date for the next round of selection is coming up soon! We will review this batch of applications with a focus on expanding the program to ensure representation from all over the world. See a country or state without a Regional Lead? Know a fellow MCT who would be a good fit? Tell them about this!
Here are the key dates:
- 2013 MCT RL application deadline: September 7, 2013
- Application Reviews: beginning September 9, 2013
- Notifications of selection: via emails by September 30, 2013
- Official welcome of the new RLs: October 4, 2013 (during our Quarterly Update!)
