What’s next for marketers in the AEC industry? We are in a fast-paced industry, where in order to be relevant, we must constantly grow, create, and redefine ourselves. Marketers are action-oriented and usually at the forefront of change. In fact, we are essential in rolling out change for our firms and the AEC industry.

Now in its 14th year, this day-long, multi-track conference is one of a kind, drawing hundreds of AEC professionals from the East Coast and beyond to learn the latest trends in business from the smartest innovators.

How to know if you’re from New Jersey:

  • You talk in terms of highway exits
  • You go “down the shore” in the summer
  • You’ve heard someone give detailed street by street directions to their favorite Italian restaurant (It’s probably in Paterson. Or Montclair.)
  • You pump your own gas
  • You have one of these:

If this sounds familiar, the New York Chapter has a group for you – the New Jersey Affiliate!

Others include seasonal spirits events and the member appreciation event. Depending on the event, we meet either monthly or on a bi-monthly basis to further our event planning activities. Committee members take on specific tasks related to the special event being planned.


COMMITTEE CORNER | Westchester Affiliate

I like to think of the Westchester Affiliate as the marketing variety show of SMPS-NY committees one could join.

No, we’re not going to ask you to dance or know the card before you even see it or pull a sparkly rabbit out of a top hat. Although, I will say many of our committee members are magical.

For some people, the thought of placing cold calls leaves that throw up aftertaste in their mouths. Visions of sleazy used-car salesmen. Family dinners being interrupted by landlines ringing with offers of mortgage refinancing opportunities. Trips to the mailbox to find junk mail instead of Grandma’s birthday card with the check in it.

You want ME to do that for the chapter?!

(Dry heaves)
