On March 7th it was announced that I got elected to to the position of Treasurer for INETA. I am very excited about this opportunity to help grow the community that I enjoy being part of and at the same time learn some skills that I can use in the future.
So what is INETA? I have talked to a lot of .NET developers that have heard of INETA but are not really sure what it is all about. First off I recommend heading over to the INETA site and reading this about page. The elevator pitch for INETA is as follows:
“INETA provides structured, peer-based organizational, educational, and promotional support to the growing worldwide community of Microsoft® .NET user groups. Our mission is to offer assistance and resources to community groups that promote and educate their membership in Microsoft’s .NET technologies. INETA welcomes all facets of the .NET user community, from developers and architects to project managers and IT professionals.”
INETA provides many resources for user groups and community leaders to help in growing their local community. In addition they provide programs for speakers, contests for user group members and ways for company’s to assist activities via sponsorships.
My term for the Treasurer position is two years so hopefully over this time I can make sure INETA remains strong and provides the resources that communities need in these times.
Please if you have any feedback on ways that we can help your group let me know. There is a great group of people that have a drive to help our community so please let us know how we can help.
I look forward to providing more information about INETA details and opportunities in the future.
