Volunteer Spotlight Award
Keith Moe (nominated by Ed Jaffe)
Keith is a respected member of the ISV software development community who has been volunteering with SHARE (and GUIDE before that) for decades. He shares his knowledge as a SHARE presenter, provides valuable insight during private meetings with IBM (both on-site and between conferences), volunteers for Officer of the Day (OOD) and Chair duties at every conference he attends, and is highly active in the Requirements process. Project and Program Managers know they can always count on Keith for help in any situation. In my opinion, it's time Keith was properly recognized for his tireless support of our platform and of our user-driven organization.
Dan Ruehl (nominated by Brian Kithcart)
Dan Ruehl, Database Project Manager, was asked to step into the Project Manager role unexpectedly because previous PM had a job change and had to step out of the role. Dan hit the ground running and the project has not missed a beat! Dan really did a great job stepping in and keeping the project running on all cylinders.
