IAMCP will recognize Microsoft staff at WPC12 in Toronto, Canada.

Each year the IAMCP provides an opportunity for Partners to recognize the Microsoft staff that work with them through this awards programme. Partners have an opportunity to vote for their preferred member of staff. The awards are made because the recipients have provided an outstanding level of service to the Partner and will have shown exceptional commitment in supporting the Partners that they work with.

Because of their dedication and service to Microsoft Partners, the IAMCP believes that they are deserving of an Award; this is an important way to recognize the people that make a real impact on Partner businesses.
