[insert-author-info] The Certified Professional Services Marketer (CPSM) is a voluntary certification designed to elevate the professional standards in marketing and influence the future of our field. You can learn MUCH more on the smps.org website, http://www.smps.org/Certification/. SMPS New York recently completed our three-part annual “CPSM Boot Camp”.  Each two hour meeting reviews two of the six domains of practice (Market Research, Marketing Planning, Clients and Business Development, Proposals, Promotional Activity and Management) and is intended to facilitate a review of testing strategies and relevant exam material. The 2016 Class included marketers and business developers from architecture, engineering, construction and consulting firms. Stay tuned for news on our latest CPSMs!
