me know (or better still volunteer) and we can make it happen.

CNET Networks UK is currently asking for nominations for its IT Community
Hero award, part of the CNET Networks UK Business Technology Awards 2008.
Would you be willing to tell your members about it to ask you who they
think deserves to win?
The award is meant to honour the person, team or organisation who has done
the most to make the lives and jobs of people in IT easier and more
productive through building connections fostering a sense of community.
The judges will be looking for a strong community focus on IT through
inclusiveness, outreach and collaboration. We could be talking anything
from a blog to work on a project with community aspects, to sponsorship of
a community project.
It's the first year we've had this particular award, and we'd really like
it to reflect the views of people on the ground. It's free to enter, of
course. You'll find a form to submit nominations in this blog post on
ZDNet UK is also approaching technology groups and organisations to see if
they would like to join our community. Take a look at (ISC)2's profile for
If you're interested, drop me a line and I'll send you our guidelines.
So please ask your members to take a moment to tell us about their
nomination for IT Community Hero. Thanks for your time.
