EMC has announced their EMC ELECT 2015 class which is the third generation of this awesome program. I am honored and thrilled to be part of this elite program. It is my first time to be EMC ELECT’d :). It is really a great honor to have this title. I look forward to giving back to the community and EMC lovers around the world.
So what is EMC ELECT?
EMC Elect is a community-driven recognition and thank you for individual’s engagement with EMC as a brand over the last calendar year. EMC ELECT is similar to Microsoft MVP and VMware vExpert programs.
Key Characteristics of an outstanding EMC Elect candidate include:
- Engagement – Members are those engaging here on the ECN, on Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn and in person at events.
- Commitment – Being a part of the EMC conversation day in and day out, offering thoughtful feedback and staying optimistic in your language.
- Leadership – The kind of people who take every opportunity to engage with their peers and represent others as part of the community.
