Do you attend SQL Server events and think "I could teach sessions about SQL Server"? Or maybe you have valuable SQL Server information that you want to share with your colleagues. Well here’s your chance: PASS Summit 2009 has opened its Call for Speakers.

PASS Summit 2009 will offer the following five content tracks:
• Enterprise Database Administration and Deployment
• Database and Application Development
• BI Architecture, Development, and Administration
• BI Client Reporting and Delivery
• Professional Development

If you have experience in any of these areas and would like to share your knowledge, you can submit an abstract outlining what you would cover in a session now through Friday, April 10th. You can submit your abstract and get more information about the tracks and abstracts on the PASS Summit 2009 Speakers page.

These days, everyone is trying to save a buck. If you want to attend PASS this year, but are hesitant to because of budget issues, you should know that PASS is offering an early-bird discount rate if you register before May 1st. For information, or to register for PASS, click here.

And here’s some good news: PASS has modified its 2009 schedule to provide you with a bit more flexibility in your travel schedule. PASS Summit 2009 will no longer be held at the end of November; instead, it’s being held in Seattle Tuesday, November 3rd through Thursday, November 5th. In addition, PASS has changed the way its handling some of the preconference seminars. Rather than having two days of preconference seminars, there will now be 1 day of preconference seminars on Monday, November 2nd and 1 day of postconference seminars on Friday, November 6th This schedule lets you attend the pre and postconference seminars without having to travel over a weekend.  

You can learn more about PASS by visiting the PASS Summit Unite 2009 website.  And don’t forget to stop by the SQL Mag booth at PASS and share your feedback about the magazine.
