imageEach month, your first-Friday delivery of the U.S. partner newsletter, emailed to you as a benefit of your Microsoft Partner Network membership, contains a list of our recommendations for U.S. SMB partners located in the West Region. We also use this list to update our West Region page on the U.S. partner portal.

These recommendations are in the U.S. partner newsletter delivered Friday, December 7. This week’s role-based training recommendations are about earning technical certifications and sales accreditations.

With the end of 2012 rapidly approaching, our focus this month is on resources that can help you close business and take advantage of offers that will expire on December 31.

You can read all the content delivered in each issue of the U.S. partner newsletter on the U.S. Partner Team blog. The next newsletter will be online only, published on December 21.
