Conferences

    There’s no faster way to develop your skills and grow your network than at an SMPS conference. With 60 chapters across the country, SMPS offers multiple regional conferences and one national conference open to members and non-members from all chapters.

    Regional Conference

    SMPS Seattle belongs to the Pacific Regional Conference along with the Alaska, Hawaii, Oregon, Los Angeles, Orange County, Sacramento, San Diego and San Francisco chapters. Each year, the Pacific Regional Conference, or PRC, is hosted in a different city in mid-February (which means we are doubly thankful for our neighboring California chapters!). This conference brings in an average of 350 attendees from across the country every year. Not sure your company will pay for it? SMPS Seattle offers a PRC scholarship, which opens up in the fall of each year.

    SAVE THE DATE FOR PRC 2019!  Jan. 30 - Feb. 1, Hilton Hawaiian Village Waikiki Beach Resort

    National Conference

    08.15.18 – 08.17.18: Build Business in San Diego, California
    Hosted by SMPS Headquarters, Build Business is SMPS’s only national conference. If you’ve never been, it’s essentially a regional conference on steroids, which is to say it can be a career-changing experience.
