CompTIA ChannelCon 2016

August 1-3, 2016 - The Diplomat Resort & Spa


Recognizing those in the IT industry who have established themselves as true future leaders, the ChannelChangers award honors young professionals whose hard work and dedication have made an indelible mark on their peers. Tied to our Future Leaders Community, the award goes to individuals within a CompTIA member company who are making their mark, have shown success or originality as an entrepreneur, or have made an industry impact in some other demonstrable way. All those who feel they meet this criteria are encouraged to apply.

Three ChannelChangers will receive complimentary registration, airfare and hotel accommodations (four nights) at ChannelCon 2016, courtesy of CompTIA. All submissions must be completed by Monday, June 13. Honorees will be notified on Tuesday, July 5.
