SEM PDX – The home of Portland’s search engine marketing community. Tom Sr. has been a member of the SEM PDX advisory board for many years. Their yearly conference SearchFest is a must attend for the best of the best in the search industry.

“SEMpdx was founded because we felt that there was a lot of veteran talent here in PDX, but we weren’t really recognized for it because we were all so busy working that we weren’t self-promoting. We also knew that the business community in Portland was coming around to SEM, but didn’t really know about the level of talent here in PDX. So this led to our rather simple mission “put search on the map in Portland, and Portland on the map in search”.
