Brett -

Assuming that there's no dissent among the LC from running it this way,
I could toss out the vote to the list today.

Do you want to send me the text for the note?  Or do you want me to
create it?

- Trent

We have a free delegate pass to the RSA Security Conference that we want to award to the person LC elects as the Most Valuable Participant (MVP) of 2009 -- that's a $2,195 value [1].  This is the first time we've tried something like this, so here is just a strawman suggestion of how we might go about this.  Note, this must be a Participant and not a contractor or member of the staff.  This goes to an individual, not a company.

That's okay because they then can give this to anyone they wish and that person will accept the MVP award as their proxy during the Pre-Conference workshop (a certificate or something that goes along with the free pass by means of a little ceremony during the morning session).
