EEMA puts dual-presidency rumours to rest
The Events and Entertainment Management Association (EEMA) in an email to Everything Experiential on Thursday denied the possibility of the organisation being helmed by co-Presidents. Earlier in the day, Everything Experiential had reported that in an unprecedented move for the organisation, Micheal Menezes and Sabbas Joseph were touted to be Co-Presidents of the Executive Committee.
“The news on Michael Menezes and Sabbas Joseph touted to be EEMA Co-Presidents is unfounded and baseless. You have been misinformed by your sources and the news is misleading and incorrect. EEMA as an association has its rules and regulations and elections are done through a process democratically," said Harjinder Singh Jindi, Executive Vice President – EEMA, in the email.
The process for the election of the next Executive Committee of the Apex body has already been underway since two weeks and the results are expected soon.
Ankur Kalra, CEO - Vibgyor Brand Services and a member of EEMA, clarified the organisation’s stand on dual-presidency, “We are still deliberating who the next EEMA president will be. The results will be announced when a decision is made but for now there is none. One thing is certain though that EEMA will never have dual presidency."
Now that the organisation has clarified its stand on the rumour, it will be interesting to see how the elections will pan out. Meanwhile, the association has been gearing up for its biggest event of the year – EEMAGINE 2014, the 7th Annual Convention of Event & Experiential Managers to be held in Kochi between 18 – 20 July.
