Benefits of becoming an SMPS Member: With more than 6,000 members on a national basis, this leading, not-for-profit organization offers its members many benefits, such as the following:

Certification - SMPS is committed to being the premier resource for education and information in marketing professional services in the built and natural environments.  The Society's certification program seeks to enhance the professional standing of professional services marketers and business developers with their employers, their peers and the public.

Networking - SMPS meetings bring together industry members on a monthly basis to learn, grow and get to know one another. Perhaps most importantly, SMPS allows members to gain greater exposure for their firms. Such relationships encourage cohesive business development and commonly lead to strategic alliances. Membership with SMPS also allows discounted registration fees for attendants of continuing educational and networking events.

Access to MySMPS.org - Post marketing and business development questions via email and receive feedback from members around the country.

Local Market Information - Programs and presentations by local leaders in the A/E/C marketplace, reporting on trends, business and economic forecast, and procurement opportunities.

Professional Development - Educational programs and lectures on skills and techniques essential to successful marketing and business development.

Educational Resources - Access to the SMPS Bookstore and Marketer, SMPS's bimonthly publication.

Directory Access - SMPS membership allows members to search online for members by name, firm, geographic location, service, and federal/state certification. This database is accessible only by members in current standing, thereby protecting everyone's privacy and allowing for enhanced networking and educational opportunities on a national basis.

Employment Opportunities - In addition to the local Central Pennsylvania job postings on our Career page, SMPS members are able to search for employment opportunities on a national level through the National Job Bank.
