Does increasing the returning attendee % for the Summit count as a new thing? Has it never increased before? I don't really see this response as being a new thing unless there has never been an increase before. And we can't increase it for the SQL Rally as there hasn't been one yet.

I think one of the most important attributes for a PASS board member is to be outspoken and to be willing you back up your words and ideas with action. I don't think Denny will have any problem in those areas!

As I understand the numbers, the PASS Summit attendance count has held steady the last few years.  While this is good given the economy, a large percentage of attendees are new attendees each year, which means that we aren't able to retain enough of them.  So the people that aren't coming back year after year aren't being provided with something that they want.

True that their hasn't been a SQL Rally before, but once the SQL Rally has happened there will hopefully be a second one to start planning for, and PASS will need to ensure that they are putting on a good event, so that the event is able to grow year over year.
