What is an MVP?

A Microsoft Most Valuable Professional (MVP) is a person who exhibits exceptional community leadership in their given field. They are committed to sharing their passion and knowledge to help others get the most out of Microsoft technologies

For the past two decades, Microsoft has recognized these exceptional people though the MVP award. Currently, there are less than 3,000 recognized MVPs in the world. Our very own Tom van Stiphout is one of less than 60 MVPs who are experts in Access.
