Microsoft Community Contributor Award 2011

On Friday the 26th Feb 2011 I was honoured to receive recognition by Microsoft for contributions to the Microsoft online technical communities with the Microsoft Community Contributor Award.  

The Microsoft Community Contributor Award is reserved for participants who have made notable contributions in Microsoft online community forums such as TechNet, MSDN and Answers. The value of these resources is greatly enhanced by participants like you, who voluntarily contribute your time and energy to improve the online community experience for others. https://www.microsoftcommunitycontributor.com/overview.aspx


I would like to thank the Microsoft Community & Online Support Team for this award and congratulations to all others that have received the MCCA for all your hard work.
