Have you voted for your Web Analytics Association Board Members yet?
For those of you who are active members in the Web Analytics Association, you only have until March 30th to vote for new Board of Directors members. I was just looking at the nominees (requires member login) and noticed that two guys I know pretty well are running, Chris D’Allesandro and Clint Ivy. Chris and Clint are both web analytics bloggers and both extremely knowledgable about the web analytics arena in general having worked both as analytics end-users as well as analytics “process people” in very large organizations for years (Chris at JWT/Ford, Clint at Disney). These are guys that know the tools they use inside-and-out and have consistently pushed their respective vendors towards excellence.
While I am very sure that all of the canidates are well qualified to serve on the WAA Board of Directors, if I can figure out how the heck to vote, I’m voting for Chris and Clint. I think that it’s absolutely essential that experienced analytics practitioners like Clint and Chris help guide the Association, folks who have to do the real work day-in and day-out. Plus, their activity in the Yahoo! group and in their blogs will keep them doubly-connected to the largest part of the WAA’s constituency.
It’s too late to make “Vote for Chris and Clint” buttons but, well, hopefully you get the drift.
