    I think I'm a charter member of the MCITP(CS - Vista) brigade -- I remember there was something special about the certificate when I got it

      MS seem to have made some changes. As your transcript doesnt reflect your Charter Member status. When i first did the MCSE upgrade the certificates didnt include "Charter Member" at the top. Now they do. I recently completed the 70-663 for Exchange 2010 design and at the top of the certificate in bold it includes Charter Member. Im not sure how valuable that makes me. But it sounds pretty cool

        Never showed up on the transcript and, TBH, I dont think it has any particular value but, as you say, it sounds cool

        Far better - the time there was a long delay in sending out paper certs and they gave free exam vouchers by way of compensation -- I got three (MCITP-EA upgrade turned into three MCTS certs) from one exam

            Taken from Microsoft.com:

            Charter Members are the pioneering group of individuals who achieve a certification within six months following the retail release date of the certification. (People who pass the beta exams automatically receive the Charter certificate.) Charter Members are recognized by receiving the Charter version of the certificate acknowledging their early adoption of the certification. The Charter version of the certificate has the word "Charter" imprinted across the top. If you have any of the following certifications, you are eligible for the Charter certificate: Microsoft Certified Technology Specialist (MCTS), Microsoft Certified IT Professional (MCITP), or Microsoft Certified Professional Developer (MCPD).

            I believe it is the first 5000 to pass the exam that recieve this status.

              Funny you should mention it, I think I made "Charter Member" for one of my exams or certs or something. Obviously it was a great boon to my career if I can remember it so well.
