by Julie Golding, U.S. MPN Lead
Each January, the Microsoft U.S. Partner Team prepares for a large number of our partners to renew their membership in the Microsoft Partner Network (MPN). By renewing your membership on time, you keep valuable benefits like partner advisory hours, MSDN and TechNet subscriptions, and exposure in the Microsoft marketplace, Pinpoint (benefits vary by membership, see the Core benefits overview for details). If you have a Microsoft competency, you also keep your distinction of being among the top 5 percent of Microsoft partners. If your company is due to renew in the next 90 days, our guidance can help make your renewal go more smoothly.
Is it time for my company to renew its Microsoft Partner Network membership?
You can find your company’s renewal date by signing in to the View your membership status page on the partner portal, using your Microsoft account (Live ID) affiliated with your MPN membership. Your company’s membership date is listed in Step 3. If your membership date is fewer than 90 days away, it’s time to get your renewal started.
Yes, my company is due to renew in the next 90 days!
Great! The next steps you take will depend on a couple of factors:
Your membership expires in 30 days or fewer
Your membership expires in 31 to 90 days
