President's Message

We have a new look here at SMPS Michigan – brighter, bolder, and ready to do business. It screams of the energy we have to ADVOCATE, EDUCATE, and CONNECT with and for our members. I am excited for the year to come and looking forward to working with the dedicated group of professionals leading and working in committees to bring you events and opportunities to learn and grow with your colleagues.

As I mentioned, we have a new look and we have a new vision. Business Transformed Through Marketing Leadership. That says it all. That’s what we are all about. We are leaders working together to make a difference in our industry and at our firms. SMPS Michigan makes that happen.

SMPS Michigan is a dynamic organization and it needs your input, ideas, and energy to make it successful. We welcome your participation at any level.

Join SMPS Michigan. It’s fun and you learn a lot about what you need to know to be successful in the A/E/C industry.

Attend the thought-provoking and informative events we provide throughout the year. Meet new and old friends at our socials. Be a part of an organization that works hard to serve you.

Volunteer for one of our committees. Share your time and talents. It not only benefits the membership at large, it benefits you. Hone and improve the skills you need to be the best at your career. Is it the: Communication / Marketing Committee; Programs Committee; Membership Committee; or Education Committee? We need you to make us work.

Get certified as a Certified Professional Services Marketer (CPSM). We provide the tools you need and the support necessary to help you study for the CPSM exam. This certification elevates our profession and elevates you as an A/E/C industry professional.

Business Transformed Through Marketing Leadership. Own it. Be it. We are SMPS Michigan.
