Berkeley Heights, NJ (PRWEB) August 16, 2006
The Affiliate Summit Convention will be held January 21-23, 2007 in Las Vegas, Nevada. The Summit is presented by Shawn Collins and Missy Ward and provides the unique
opportunity for affiliate marketing professionals to gather and learn from one another in a cooperative environment.
The Affiliate Summit 2007 Keynote Speaker, Michael Sanchez, co-founded ClubMom out of respect and admiration for Moms. As a driving force behind ClubMom, Michael plays the critical role in the company's strategy, growth, and overall operations.
Established in 1999, ClubMom is an innovator and leader in affiliate marketing on both the merchant and affiliates sides.
ClubMom is the premier online destination for moms, by moms - bringing together the best of what real moms have to say on topics they care about most. Through quality content submitted by thousands of mom contributors and the Web's first mom-to-mom social network, moms find answers, support, and insight needed to help lead their busy lives.
The MomNetwork, ClubMom's newly launched social network, allows moms to search for and connect with other moms based on similar challenges, interests, kids' ages, and geography. Through the ClubMom Rewards program, moms earn points to redeem for rewards just for them.
ClubMom was co-founded by Meredith Vieira, former host of ABC-TV's The View and future co-host of The Today Show; Andrew Shue, actor and social activist; and Michael Sanchez, ClubMom CEO and entrepreneur. Prominent investors
include Highland Capital Partners and Draper Fisher Jurvetson.
Prior to ClubMom, Michael was the co-founder and President of Do Something from 1993-1999. Do Something is the premier provider of youth-led leadership and citizenship initiatives in schools. Do Something has worked with more than two million students and 15,000 educators to improve young people's leadership skills through meaningful involvement in their communities.
Michael also co-founded and served as the Chief Executive Officer of the profitable, '94 Cup Daily, the nation's only daily newspaper dedicated to the 1994 World Cup Soccer Tournament held in the United States.
Michael played soccer in college for the nation's top ranked University of Virginia team and then professionally in Zimbabwe, where he also taught High School math.
As a child, Michael traveled around the country and the world as a top-ranked junior chess player. He received extensive media coverage as a chess prodigy, conducting dozens of chess exhibitions and earning a draw with the #3 ranked player in the world.
Michael graduated from Columbia Law School in 1993, with honors. He currently resides in New Jersey with his wife, Robin, sons John and Michael, and daughter Maria.
"We are very excited to have secured Michael Sanchez as the keynote speaker for our January 2007 show," stated Shawn Collins, co-founder of Affiliate Summit.
"Michael is a business visionary who brought ClubMom from a start-up in the late 1990's through the Dot-com Bubble Burst and into profitability. Affiliate marketers will benefit greatly from his insight and experience,"
