As many partners work to renew their membership in the Microsoft Partner Network and meet the new competency requirements, here is a quick recap about how we are helping partners manage their transition.
First, Microsoft extended the period in which you can continue using your old Microsoft Partner Network logos and internal-use software benefits. Partners who were previously Gold Certified or Certified, who have an active membership, can continue using their current internal-use software benefits and logos until October 31, 2011. To take advantage of this extension, you must renew your membership in the Partner Network by your Membership Renewal Date. Note that your ability to download software and obtain activation keys will be affected, depending on which membership opportunity you renew into, and that this extension does not pertain to the MSDN and TechNet subscription benefits.
Review the Software and Logo Benefits Extension details to understand more fully how your benefits are affected.
Second, if you have additional questions about the benefits extension or need help renewing your membership, including getting a comprehensive understanding of the outstanding requirements you may have to attain your desired competencies, our Microsoft Partner Network Experts are available by email, phone, and even on chat.
Email: firstname.lastname@example.org Phone: 1-877-254-6825 Chat: On any of our competency pages, if an MPN Expert is available, you’ll be invited to click to chat
Thank you for being a Microsoft partner.
