My fellow search engine optimization and public relations enthusiast, Greg Jarboe, kindly reminded me today of the upcoming SEMPO board nominations for 2007-2008. The year went by pretty fast because it seems not long ago that SEMPO announced it’s new board members.
If you want a venue to make a difference and/or an impact on the search marketing industry, a SEMPO board membership might just be the ticket.
All current SEMPO members are eligible to nominate members or themselves for a board position. Nominations are open through Thursday, January 18, 5:00 PM Eastern Time.
To make a nomination, login to sempo.org, click on the “2007 Board of Directors Election” link and you will be presented with an email address you can use to nominate board candidates.
‚Ä¢ January 8th – 18th, nominations
‚Ä¢ January 25th – nominees announced
‚Ä¢ February 6 – 16, voting
‚Ä¢ Late February – results announced
‚Ä¢ March – the new board starts and elects officers
Dana Todd is the current SEMPO President and has served on the board for 3 years. Gord Hotchkiss is the current Chairperson. In the past year SEMPO has made a lot of progress, which is an interesting contrast to some of the drama surrounding the first year or so. SEMPO is without question a formidable entity in the search marketing industry and has launched a formal search marketing education program and an expansion of their market research efforts.
