Tension at the DMA
What is arguably an internal dispute at the DMA has spilled over into an email and ad battle. Gary Pike is sending email and publishing ads on websites asking DMA members to sign their proxy votes over to him. I saw one of the ads on Chief Marketer a few days ago, but am now unable to get the same ad to load.
The dispute has also generated a lawsuit as the DMA alleges that Mr. Pike has inappropriately used the DMA membership contact lists to support his bid for election.
