The Technology Association of Georgia is having their annual award dinner and nominations for 2012 activities. Here is a snippet from the site:
The Technology Association of Georgia’s Product Manager of the Year Award 2012 recognizes the outstanding efforts of a Product Manger to development, adhere, and execute the ideals of our profession. Whether it is a product or service that breaks new ground or driving a product through its life cycle, this award is to an individual that upholds the highest standards of Product Management. It may not yet be proven in the marketplace but an understanding of the potential market must be demonstrated. The product or service could include hardware, software, services – such as training or support, telecommunications, new techniques or any similar innovation. This award may also consist of a unique combination of technologies that have been combined for the first time.
If you have a nominee for consideration, the recommendation needs to be made by January 25, 2013 via the forms at the following link: http://www.tagonline.org/TAG-PM-Awards.php
There are several categories for consideration:
- Product Manager of the Year
- Rookie Product Manager of the Year – Less than three years Product Management experience
- Product Launch of the Year
If you want to attend the award dinner and hear a keynote from Bill Nussey, the CEO of Silver Pop and participate in the recognition of Atlanta and Georgia’s leading technology marketers, the registration form is here: https://s08.123signup.com/servlet/SignUpMember?PG=1521974182300&P=15219741911425697300&Info
Even though summer is almost over, it’s time for summer camp. With the second PCampATL behind us this winter, the 3rd installment is rapidly approaching for technology Marketers, Product Marketers and Product Managers. I’ve had the opportunity over the last couple of weeks to work with the team to put together the plan and help with organizing the latest Product Camp and it’s definitely going to be another great opportunity to learn, share and volunteer.
A big thanks needs to go to Jason Brett, the founder of PCamp ATL, who spent his weekends over the past year traveling around to see how things are done at other product camps (Product Camp SoCal and Austin) around the country in an effort to make this one even better.
Need some more information about what a ProductCamp is? Take a look at Paul Young’s overview.
So here are the details of the event:
When: August 21, 2010 from 9 AM -5PM, but breakfast starts at 8:30 AM
Where: GTRI Conference Center, 250 14th Street NW Atlanta, GA 30318
I look forward to seeing you there!
So what is more fun that being in Austin in the spring? Not much, which is why I’m going to meet some folks for the first time, catch up with old friends and chat little bit about Product Management. The ProductCamp momentum is amazing so far this year, looks like Silicon Valley went past the 500 mark, Atlanta approached 250 and new ones are popping up like ProductCamp Chicago and other ones around the globe. I’m making a personal goal to make it to 4 this year, hopefully it is something I can do, since each one has a little different flavor and different people to learn from.
ProductCamp Austin should be a great event for all the local and not so local Product Management, Product Marketing, and Marketing folks to learn from and network with each other.
Hopefully I’ll see some of you at the AT&T conference center on Saturday, March 27 from 9 AM – 4:00 PM.
