About being a MS Regional Director

In case you didn't know, I have been a Microsoft Regional Director (RD) for about 3 years now. There are some similarities to the Microsoft Most Valuable Professional (MVP) award program, which I've also been fortunate to receive for the past 2 years. But since the program is smaller (about 150 RD's world-wide), it is much less known, and as such, when the topic comes up, there are some common questions about being an RD.

Fellow Regional Director, Jonathan Goodyear, wrote up a very nice description of the Regional Director position for asp.netPRO recently that is worth reading.

In addition to myself, there are two other Regional Directors in Toronto, Kate Gregory and Scott Howlett.
