Today I found out some great news, that I was invited to return for a second stint of the Salesforce community MVP program! The point of this blog is not to toot my horn, but instead put the focus on what is so great - the Salesforce community.
They have been working dilligently to round up mavens such as myself and get us together in productive ways. We help other Salesforce users out and serve as brand ambassadors. If you follow me on Twitter (@DarthGarry), you might see the recurring theme. And as a favor back to us, we get access to product experts at Salesforce and primo seating at events.
So what does this mean to you? Well, a few things.
#1 - Anyone can become an MVP. I don't know the formula but it is based on a system of nominations and Salesforce reviewing social media engagement metrics. Go out, make friends, and help people. It won't go unnoticed.
#2 - If you're not already, you should engage with as many MVPs as possible. When you need a hand, seek us out. We're a group of product experts and overall nice people. If we don't know an answer, we usually know how to find it.
And, here are a few Salesforce MVP related resources:

Thanks to my fellow MVPs for making this experience so fun and rewarding. Thanks to Salesforce for tapping into all of this energy and making a great program out of it. Also, thanks to Erica Kuhl, the Salesforce Community manager.
