This year there are 25 User Member nominees for GPUG All-Star AwardsCongratulations to all the nominees!Thank you for your Dedication, GPUG is what it is because of the Power of Us !!!I think we need to create more infrastructure around the voting process, I'd like to see dedicated profile pages, with threaded messages to allow other members to comment on the contributions that each nominee has made to GPUG and to characterize the impact that the nominee has had on their regional chapter, SIGs, online webinars, Open Forum contributions, GPUG volunteer and committee work etc. Some of us have crossed paths with you some have not, but I believe we can all be inspired by the impact you have had on others and the improvements that you have brought to this community.On that note, I'd like to invite the general membership to reply to this message with your brief endorsement for nominees who have impacted you and your experience here in GPUG this past year.If this takes off perhaps GPUG can move this to a new dedicated forum "GPUG ALL-STAR User Member Nominees 2019"

This is a great idea. I look forward to getting to know some of these people more! That being said, I only know one of these people personally, so I'll tell you what I know about him.Blair Christensen is one of our chapter leaders here in Idaho. We only have two, so he does a lot of work to keep our chapter going (they both do!). He has a talent for making people feel welcome at our meetings and a vested interest in making the meetings successful and valuable to our members. He is a genuinely kind man who truly has everyone's best interest at heart. If he can help you, he will. If he can't, he will try every trick he knows to find a way to help anyway. He has a thirst for knowledge and a love for sharing what he learns; he has a teacher's heart and will be presenting at Summit this year. He contributes to a conversation, but never assumes he knows all the answers, and is interested in what others have to say. He is active on the discussion boards, offering extra information or solutions whenever he can. He is enthusiastic about the GPUG community and is a strong advocate in encouraging others to actively participate in whatever way they are comfortable. Overall, he is a great example of what a GPUG All-Star is to me.I was happy to see that someone else values his contributions as much as I do and nominated him!
