GrowthProfessional Development

A continuum of learning and support activities!

SMPS New York organizes programs for AEC industry marketers, business developers, and principals to further their knowledge around the SMPS Six Domains of Practice: marketing and research, marketing planning, client and business development, proposals, promotional activity, and management. The Professional Development committee works to develop programs on topics that are current and important to today’s marketing teams.

Professional Development Committee Organized Programs

In addition to our three professional development evening programs in the spring, our Professional Development Committee organizes the following programs:

THE Marketing Event (TME)

Our annual, full-day professional development symposium draws hundreds of AEC professionals from the East Coast and beyond to learn about significant trends in business from the smartest innovators.

These bimonthly, hour-long lunch sessions provide attendees a forum for open discussion around a variety of topics from public relations to proposals to photography. Better yet, they are free for members!

Coordinators Club

Our members-only Coordinators Club brown bag lunches are the perfect way for marketers with less than four years of experience to develop a peer group and discuss topics relevant to their jobs with senior industry professionals.

The goal of these programs are to recognize, support, and encourage the development of leadership as it manifests at every level of one’s marketing career.
