What role a portal?

One of the assets we have is the Microsoft Public Sector Partner Portal.

My inclination is to make this the resource for static information and one-way communication, moving the live events to a more two-way format.

The question, however, is how to add value without overwhelming the partner experience?

We'll need to limitĀ ourselves to only putting stuff up there that really adds value, can't be found elsewhere, and can easily be found in and of itself.

So, partners...what do you think it should be?
