Yesterday evening I received a mail from IBM stating the following:
Congratulations, you’re an IBM Champion!
On behalf of IBM, it is with great pleasure that I invite you to join the IBM Champion program for 2016. After reviewing your nomination(s), the selection committee agreed that your efforts over the last 12 months distinguish you as a true IBM Champion. Thank you for your leadership and commitment to the community. You are among an elite group across all of the IBM Social Business community to be chosen for this recognition. The IBM Champion designation is a 1 year term and may be renewed by IBM each year, provided you submit a nomination that demonstrates continued community contributions. The public 2016 IBM Champion announcement has been posted here.
So congratulations to all IBM Champions for 2016. 101 in total, 39 newcomers and 64 returning ones. I am specially pleased to see that the Social Connections team almost has a full sweep.
