(Nothing like waiting until the last minute)

I have been an IBM Champion for the last three years and would really like to continue this trend.  It is something that makes me very happy.

I have been heads down crazy busy for the last month with work and trying to get my house ready to sell; and kept putting this off until now.

IBM Champion Nominations are open until COB on November 1, 2018.  

For all of you who know what I do, please take some time to nominate me for IBM Champion 2019
