Introducing the new SMPS DC website, your gateway to all things SMPS DC. From upcoming events, to educational resources and chapter announcements, our new site aims to help you get and stay connected with your peers, partners, and our chapter.

We’ve made a number of upgrades, including improvements to the mobile experience, updated language and graphics, and a new streamlined navigation that helps make it easier for you to find what you need when you need it.


Looking to get ahead in your career? Look no further. Here you’ll find all you need to pursue your CPSM, gain financial aid and peer recognition, or make your next career move. Dig deep to learn more about our chapter-sponsored awards programs, including the Ginny Solomon Golden Tuba Award.


New to the chapter, or looking to get more involved? Find everything you need to know about SMPS DC membership, including how volunteering for one of our many committees can help you make the most of it. Learn more about the volunteers behind the chapter and contact us today to get involved in our upcoming 2017-2018 program year.


Staying up to date on our latest events is now easier than ever. In addition to accessing featured events across the homepage and footer, you can now find and search our full calendar of events by type, date, or affiliation with one of our signature series.


There’s a lot to love about SMPS DC, and this is where you can find it – from our current Board of Directors to the latest updates, announcements, and event recaps on our blog. Want to learn more? Reach out to us today to speak with one of our dedicated chapter leaders about how SMPS DC can help you and your firm find success.


Like what you see? We couldn’t do any of it without the generous support of our sponsors. From in-kind to platinum and everywhere in between, our sponsors contribute to an annual calendar that features an average of 50 events a year, providing unparalleled access and visibility for your firm within the AEC community.

Like all digital platforms, the new SMPSDC.ORG is in perpetual beta. We’ll be plugging away behind the scenes to add fresh content, refine the user experience, and make sure everything is working as it should. If you see any items requiring our attention, or want to share your user feedback, please feel free to contact us.

We’re incredibly excited the day has finally come where we can share this new site with all of you. And on that note, I’d like to acknowledge our website committee, a team of talented volunteers who helped make this site a reality: Kate Attillio, CPSM; Crystal Brackett, CPSM; Katie Garrett; Deborah Hayward; Melissa Hollinshead; Jennifer McGovern; Koren Stauffer, CPSM; and Kyle Veater. Thank you for pouring so much time, energy and creativity into redefining the look and feel of our chapter.

Stay tuned for more exciting upgrades to the SMPS DC brand throughout the year as we celebrate our chapter's 35th anniversary. Hope you can join us to kick things off in September!
