Can’t get financial support to attend high-level national programming? Take advantage of our members-only financial aid programs.

Top rate programming comes with a top-rate price, but we don’t let that deter our members. Each year, our chapter offers financial assistance to multiple programs hosted by SMPS Headquarters, including Build Business and SMPS University.

Build Business is the SMPS Annual Conference that brings together 800+ AEC firm leaders, marketers, and business developers from across the country. If this sounds right up your alley but it didn’t make the budget, let us help. This all-expenses paid grant not only covers your conference registration, but airfare, hotel and meals as well. All you need to do is apply.

The SMPS Pinnacle Experience is the Society's event designed for senior marketing leaders, specifically for professionals with significant experience (10-15+ years) who serve as the "first chair" for leading their firm's marketing and business development efforts. This may include CEOs, CMOs, directors, principals, vice presidents, and SMPS Fellows. The symposium-style event provides thought-provoking learning and networking opportunities for the participants.
