Volunteers on behalf of the Student Outreach Committee presented to Montgomery College’s Macklin Business Institute (MBI) on Wednesday, May 1st, to an audience of 23 students. The goal of the presentation was to introduce the students to career paths in Marketing and Business Development within the A/E/C industry and to share the opportunities that SMPS DC can offer students with scholarships, internships and student memberships.

The presentation was a huge success; the Macklin Business Institute’s Director appreciated how SMPS’s programs could expose his students to real-world experiences and help them build marketing skills for their annual national marketing competition. At least two students applied for the SMPS DC Scholarship and several students expressed interest in student membership and internship opportunities. SMPS DC will be returning to Montgomery College in the fall and will be adding Marymount University and other local universities and colleges to the list.

Huge kudos to the volunteers of the Student Outreach Committee for all of your hard work and efforts scheduling, collaborating and presenting: Ami Kelly of GHT Limited, Alexander Hallheimer of Keast & Hood, Christa Montgomery of Bowie Gridley Architects, Corinn Bovi of Manhattan Construction, Kathleen Held of Cini-Little International, and Virginia O’Meara of Pons & Associates.
