I'm the CTG representative for the Cisco Champion leadership team. We'd love to have more Collaboration experts apply for the program to build up our membership. In the past year, we've increased our Collaboration membership as well as our content -- more Cisco Champion Radio podcasts with Cisco experts. And more to come.
