HHH! Well, if you get any checks out-of-the-blue from SEMPO, you're going to have to retract that non-disclaimer.

Just a joke. Or perhaps not. It's so difficult to tell these days....

Please accept my unreserved apology for being a bit, shall we say, sharp with you regarding SEMPO matters. I "knew" you were on a SEMPO comittee and looked at some of your posts elsewhere as just circling the wagons.
Fact is truely stranger than fiction.

Looking on the bright side...SEMPO have sure done a good job of pulling the SEO industry together, right?
[yeah that's right RC, me and Jill exchanging smilies, if it wasn't for SEMPO.....]

Yes, I don't believe I've ever seen the SEO industry quite so unified in its opinion of an organization, with the possible exception of Traffic Power.

How were they selected? They all volunteered. It was that simple. They responded to two emails sent to all SEMPO members. The emails were sent on August 4, 2004 (http://www.sempo.org...pdate-Aug04.htm) and August 18 (http://www.sempo.org...te_08_18_04.htm). In addition, all SEMPO members in the UK were sent an individual email in mid-August. If others would like to volunteer for the UK committee, I am sure they would still welcome additional volunteers even at this late date. You should hurry, however. They will be electing a chairperson at their first meeting this coming week.

>I'm another of those people who is listed as a committee member.
>I'm also not a SEMPO member.
Maybe I'd better go check and see if my name is on the committee roster. From posts like these around the forums, it's beginning to look like they ran a harvester bot.

My actual involvement, unfortunately, has been limited to that conversation, though the folks working on elections did make a diligent effort to work on the issues surrounding elections without me.
I'm glad that they retained legal counsel to review those processes. I think that was the appropriate step to take.
As I wrote over at Cre8asite, it was a surprise to see my name listed on the page.
I do think that in this area, the organization has made the right choice to hire skilled and qualified counsel.

I made my post at 2.41pm (about this which someone must have approved??? Or does that not count with SEMPO??)
Your post at 8.13pm says this:
"As of late this afternoon (EST), the UK Committee for SEMPO includes Jason Cartwright of GCDM Ltd., Edward Cowell of Neutralize, Martin Murray of Interactive, Richard Gregory of Corporemglobal, Debbie Everson of Search Marketing, Andy Atkins-Kruger of WebCertain.com, Colin Irwin of Spex, Simon Collingridge of BizCom Services, Barry Lloyd of MakeMeTop, and Paddy Bolger of Top-Pile."
[But the web site still hadn't been changed for the public -- just for info...]
Most interested parties can read that as:
Since Mike has spoken to a few people (those not afraid to speak to Mike, that is) the list has been changed to pacify Barry Lloyd and Paddy Bolger who are big hitters in the sub's area i.e. Gold Circle five grand jobs.
You now say with your revised hat on:
How were they selected? They all volunteered. It was that simple. They responded to two emails sent to all SEMPO members. The emails were sent on August 4, 2004 (http://www.sempo.org/communications/Member-Update-Aug04.htm) and August 18 (http://www.sempo.org/communications/member_update_08_18_04.htm). In addition, all SEMPO members in the UK were sent an individual email in mid-August. If others would like to volunteer for the UK committee, I am sure they would still welcome additional volunteers even at this late date. You should hurry, however. They will be electing a chairperson at their first meeting this coming week.
Let me point you to the ORIGINAL list here (a well collected snapshot of)
And now... who on this committee was able to vote for who? Or is this emerging industry and its constituents simply open to first come first served as a qualification?
FUTILE - SEMPO makes this industry look like nothing more than a bunch of amateurs who can't get their act together.

I'm not all that familiar with how volunteer orgs run as I run real fast when I hear th word "volunteer."
However, I believe that committees are actually put together on a first come first serve basis. You want to be on one, you're on it. Just sign up, simple as that. I don't think that's too unusual at least here in the US. I have seen stuff like that happen in the schools and stuff as they're always looking for volunteers too (that's when I sneak out to go to the bathroom or whatever ).
