    I passed 70-620 last month and this exam became available on January 4,
    2007.
    However, I did not receive the Charter Member Certification when I received
    my MCTS welcome kit. Is there something wrong?

    all.

    From FAQ:
    Charter Members are those individuals who are recognized as the pioneering
    group who have achieved one of the New Generation of Certifications in the
    first six months of the exam release date. Charter Members are recognized
    with a special letter of recognition and also the Charter version of the
    certificate.

  5. Normally this is a limited number of people (first 500 or 1,000). I am
    not sure about the 6 months thing.

    I chartered several certs both MCTS and MCITP. I got charter certs for both
    levels.

    However there are two certs which I chartered (MCTS: Microsoft Windows
    SharePoint Services 3.0: Configuration and MCTS: Microsoft Office SharePoint
    Server 2007: Configuration where I never got anything.

  7. Its a charter for the MCTS Program not the Individual Certs. And you can
    only be a charter member once. So if you got in the Charter for the MCTS on
    SQL 2005 likeI did well more than a year ago that means you were one of the
    first 5000 MCTS Certification holders period. No matter which designation
    you may have received.
