Who do you turn to when there's uncertainty in the channel? Which influencer's blog do you read after you find out a vendor is taking advantage of its channel partners? We at Penton Technology want to know.

The VAR Guy, one of our sister sites, has kicked off its inaugural Top 50 Channel Influencers survey, recognizing those in the channel who are truly making a difference in what we hope will become an annual event.

But we need your input. The survey takes five to 10 minutes to complete and the rules are simple:

  • Anybody directly involved with the channel is eligible: channel chiefs, solution providers, managed services providers, consultants, coaches — you name it.
  • You may nominate yourself.
  • Only one nomination per nominee.
  • Deadline for participation is Feb. 28.

Thank you for helping us create this list. Please click on this link to go to the survey.
