What is Partner Advisory Council (PAC)

Partner Advisory Council (PAC) acts as a strategic think-tank for presenting ideas and initiatives for Microsoft’s board of directors in Redmond. The intention is to improve and develop Microsoft’s partners, their members and the industry as a whole.

The Goal of PAC

The goal of PAC is to gather and depict partner feedback concerning Microsoft’s strategic products, programs and services through meeting and continuous dialogs between chosen partners and Microsoft’s leaders. Thereby more cohesive, strategic relations are developed to their select partners across the globe, and hands-on knowledge is gained from the people that have the most knowledge concerning the practical use of the product. The PAC program is comprised of approximately 24 individual PAC’s, and has over 500 members. PAC meets twice annually to exchange knowledge and enhance networking.
