SEMPO Elections Scandal-free, So Far

SEMPO, the Search Engine Marketing Professional Organization, is holding its annual elections for its board

SEMPO, the Search Engine Marketing Professional Organization, is holding its annual elections for its board. Notably absent from the nominees are three members of the 2005 board: former chairperson Barbara Coll, from SEM firm WebMama; Chris Churchill, founder and vice chairman of Fathom Online; and Ron Belanger, former Carat Interactive VP who’s now senior director of global advertiser strategy and development at Yahoo! I called up SEMPO president Dana Todd to see if there was anything scandalous to report, similar to the organization’s freshman year woes. Fortunately for SEMPO (and unfortunately for me as a journalist), Dana assured me that all was well. She pointed out that 10 of the 13 board members were seeking re-election, that those departing had valid personal/job-related reasons, and that SEMPO has been pretty darn busy in 2005.

Oh well, I suppose I can always hope that the juicy behind-the-scenes bits will be revealed in the after-hours events of SES at the end of the month. If you’re attending the show and want to meet up for coffee, a drink, or just to chat, drop me a line at kevin -at- clickz -dot- com.
