I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

You need to demonstrate skill in a particular area over a long period of time (3 - 5 years), demonstrate the ability to help people, and demonstrate the ability to communicate well.  Then in here, as you form relationships with people, you may be able to get an MVP to nominate you.

My MVP is in Windows and Devices for IT.  I generally can help people here with Windows problems and have certificates here in Windows 7 and Windows 10.

Another member here and I know each other well and he nominated me in 2016 and I have been an MVP since.

I am off to the Microsoft MVP Global Summit in March 2018.

No, but you need to get nominated (I just nominated a member here) and then you need to fill out the requirements spreadsheet when you receive it. It will take a few months for Microsoft to review your submission and make a decision.
