President's Purple Platform
  • President 2017-2018, SMPS New York
“The Pantone Color of the Year has come to mean so much more than ‘what’s trending’ in the world of design; it’s truly a reflection of what’s needed in our world today.” – Laurie Pressman, Vice President
The Pantone Color Institute

Talk about serendipity! As I suspect many of you have heard—given the large number of messages I received once this was announced—Pantone’s 2018 Color of the Year is none other than PANTONE 18-3838 Ultra Violet. That’s right, it’s PURPLE! Can you hear the angelic music playing? I mean, how is it that all the stars mysteriously aligned to grace my purple presidency with this colorful blessing from the design gods? Okay, I’m getting a little carried away, but let’s just say that this announcement gave me a renewed sense of purple purpose with regard to leading this chapter and helping our members find their purple power.

I love what Pantone says about this color: “A dramatically provocative and thoughtful purple shade, PANTONE 18-3838 Ultra Violet communicates originality, ingenuity, and visionary thinking that points us toward the future.” As we enter 2018, SMPS New York’s goal is to help you develop those very qualities, by putting forth programming that inspires innovation, unique perspectives, and forward-thinking ideas, and that helps you on your path to a fulfilling career. What better place to do this, than in a welcoming community of AEC marketing professionals, all working together to push ourselves and our industry forward? (more…)

Firm principals, SMPS members, and AEC professionals, mark your calendars! SMPS New York will co-host our annual Principals’ Breakfast with Professional Women in Construction (PWC) on March 13, 2018. Given the importance of this, our biggest and most well-attended client program, our Chapter has decided to match the high caliber speakers with a high caliber event space. This year, we are adding a touch of sophistication by moving the program to the Grand Ballroom at the Yale Club!


Members are invited to bring their firm’s principals at the member rate to learn more about New York’s upcoming AEC opportunities in 2018-2019. Another new feature this year, in addition to a formal sit-down breakfast, is the addition of table hosts. One speaker from a past SMPS-NY client panel will sit at each table. Attendees will rub elbows with their table hosts while listening to industry leaders discuss the 2018-2019 economic forecasts from various AEC sectors. Attendees at each table will also have the opportunity to pose questions to the expert panel. This unique event is designed to promote networking and face-to-face contact with potential clients and leaders in NYC’s regional AEC community.


Come experience this next-level event and participate in the discussion about what opportunities are on the horizon for your firm. We look forward to seeing you there!
