All Associates who joined on or before February 29, 2020 are automatically reviewed for promotion to the Oracle ACE level. We review your contributions (including but not limited to number of contributions, depth of content, focus on Oracle products), and take into consideration if you are active in at least two channels. Therefore, you do not need to email us to request a review for a promotion. Please see the earlier email for more review information.
