Letter from the Committee Director
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.
With a responsibility to facilitate programming in and surrounding Westchester County, our year is generally made of programs, networking events, and professional development webinars. We work alongside the strength and support of the other SMPS-NY committees, giving Westchester committee members a true integration into the many gears of our chapter.
This structure lends to many different “acts” that make up our year, our variety show. In job speak: we engage in the diverse skills of a marketer. That means whether you want to learn more about event planning, writing, building on business development skills, designing, or strategizing, there are multiple opportunities to do so. Try chairing PR for one program and take on event planning for Spirits!
Why Join This Committee?
By volunteering on the Westchester Affiliate Committee through event planning and program development, you gain the opportunity to extend your reach throughout the region to build a powerful network of local professionals in the industry.
Director of Westchester Affiliate
For our members located in Westchester, the Westchester Affiliate plans and hosts client panel breakfast programs, professional development seminars, including webinars, Spirits happy hours, and committee meetings that give you a chance to meet your peers and network with local contacts.
