Our membership consists of firm principals, business development executives, marketing directors, managers, coordinators and assistants.

SMPS-TC has a database of more than 1,000 people that frequently make buying decisions for the services you provide. From September to June, the chapter offers monthly educational events, professional development seminars and social events customized for seasoned and emerging business development and marketing professionals. Approximately 50-75 professionals typically attend the luncheon and professional development programs.  These meetings and events give sponsors a premier opportunity to introduce products and/or services to a concentrated market.
