SEMPO Board Nominations Open

It's that time of year again -- time to pick new leadership at SEMPO, the Search Engine Marketing Professionals Organization. Members can nominate candidates for the board of directors for 2007-8 until next Thursday, January 18, at 5 p.m. EST. Submissions can be made via e-mail or on SEMPO's Web site.

This is the first step in the process, with the next steps being a public posting of all nominees (Jan 25), then voting by members (Feb 6-16). Winners will be announced in late February, and their terms will begin in mid-March. At their first meeting, the board will elect officers.

The current board and officers are all eligible for re-election.
