Search Engine Marketing Association of North American Looking for Members
The Search Engine Marketing Association of North American, officially launched February 2005 aims to be an open, democratic, and responsible, member-focused trade organization representing the interests of professionals working in the field of search engine marketing. In addition to giving its members an industry voice, the SMA-NA provides a platform to inform and educate the business marketplace of the benefits of search engine marketing. The SMA-NA is proud to stand alongside the SMA-UK and SMA-EU chapters, both launched in 2004.
“We are getting a clear message the industry wants and needs an organization to promote and support the welfare and interests of professionals working in the field of search engine marketing,” said Ian McAnerin member of the working group committee. “The association will be member driven and open to all types of search engine marketing professionals ranging from individuals to the larger search marketing firms. We are actively seeking members from Canada, Mexico and the United States.”
The SMA-NA is actively seeking new members and encourages anyone in the search engine marketing industry to apply for membership. Official elections of the Board of Officers is scheduled for early fall 2005 after the membership drive has ended. Only registered members of the organization will be eligible for nominations to the Board and can vote in the election. The working group committee plans on having its membership drive kickoff meeting at the Search Engine Strategies tradeshow in San Jose during August of 2005.
