 Check out what our Members have to say about the benefits of serving on a Committee:

My membership with SMPS and participation on various committees has had immeasurable impact on my career and growth as a professional. Through my participation within the organization, I have garnered numerous professional skills, many of my professional relationships, and a bolstered professional confidence.  If you’re looking for an organization to support that gives back tri-fold what you put in – SMPS is the right pick.”
Emily Murphy Siem, Calibre Engineering

“I began volunteering with SMPS shortly after joining the organization and soon found myself as Co-Chair and then Chair of a committee. Being thrust into a leadership position was a great way to accelerate my personal impact and overall comfort with the association and people within. Being a volunteer means you can directly shape the content and direction of the organization. It’s all about coming up with and implementing new ideas and new ways to help members and ultimately our unique sub-sector of this industry as a whole.”
Jennifer Mathers, Turner Construction CO.

"Serving as a member of SMPS for the last 11 years has given me career opportunities, training and an invaluable network. Using my SMPS network has allowed me to increase revenue for my firm, hash out successful marketing strategies with peers and build lasting friendships. SMPS gives A/E/C marketers and business developers a community that is unsurpassed. Volunteering and serving on committees and now the Executive Board, has been well worth the time."
W. Celeste Davis Stragand, CPSM, Kiewit

“Being part of the Education committee with SMPS has had a profound impact on career.  I am a more valuable employee and more confident person because of the tools that the committee has taught me,from public speaking to writing skills to reaching out to industry leaders.  I have happily dedicated time to this committee because of the lifelong relationships I have gained and the positive direction my career has taken.  I encourage any SMPS member to join a committee to get the most value out of their membership.”  
Krista Sanderson, S.A. Miro

What a great way to learn leadership skills before ever taking on such a position at my firm. SMPS gave me the opportunity to manage my own team and the confidence to apply this to my job!”
Dana Humphreys, Hyder Construction

“Joining SMPS has impacted my career in many ways: exceptional professional growth training, business development opportunities, visibility for my company. When I joined a committee and started invested my time to contribute back to the organization, my network exploded. It’s been a great value to me and my firm and I’ve made great friends on top of it!
Karen Current, DHM Design
