Starting mid-November, the U.S. gold competency membership fee will increase to $5,260. This increase will be reflected when you attain or renew your gold competency. Microsoft partners that have attained a gold competency represent best-in-class capabilities as market leaders, and the depth and breadth of today’s partner benefits are significant:
Earlier this year, IDC released a white paper about the Business Value of the Microsoft Partner Network Core Benefits (Mira Perry and Steve White, June 2012).
