The Liberty Ball – probably the most exciting event our chapter puts on every year. Anticipating which exceptional piece of marketing will win each category, cheering on your friends as they are recognized with Professional Achievement Awards, and hanging out with some of the best people in the industry all make attending this event a real highlight of the SMPS New York chapter year.

It’s at the Liberty Ball in 2016 where I really understood how big of a deal this event is. Helping spread the word about the event barely scratched the surface of how much work went into putting on the show. Even last year, after joining the Board of Directors and hearing about the hours and hours spent planning the event, down to the last detail, it made attending and seeing everything come together that much more fulfilling.


With this post, and as a member of SMPS New York, I want to thank those who have dedicated the time and energy into putting on what I think will be the best Liberty Ball yet – way to go Special Events Committee! The finalists in each Marketing Communications Award category are all inspiring – it’s great to be able to see what other marketers are doing for their firms to yield success. The Professional Achievement Awards winners – Robin, Keith, Carlyle, and Ali – are all incredible people who I know many of us have had great conversations with and have learned from over the course of the last year. Even the location, Hudson Terrace, promises to be a great backdrop for what will be a really fun night.

I hope everyone who reads this, and all the members and firms who make up our organization, attends this “Oscars of the NYC AEC Industry” event. I know I’m looking forward to it and I hope you are too!
