Join the Board of Directors

Wondering how to bring your professional development to the next level? Consider applying for the board of directors. 

SMPS Seattle is led by 10 directors, each masters of their specialized domain. The board is responsible for setting the strategic direction of the chapter through development and management of our three-year strategic plan. We strive to advance the professional and personal development of our chapter’s membership by growing our education and networking programs. Seattle’s board of directors also ensures the chapter remains fiscally responsible for our members today and in the future.

Plus – we have fun! Serving on the board is one of the best ways to connect with other members and learn together. It can be an enriching experience that gives you leadership and growth opportunities you may not have in your day job.

How Do I Apply?

The board of directors are nominated and approved by the chapter membership each spring. With the exception of a few positions, each board member serves for one SMPS year, which turns over in September. To be considered for a board position, you must have previously volunteered for SMPS Seattle or another chapter. To be eligible as president you must have served on an SMPS board in another position for a full year.

Interested? Contact President-Elect Heidi Maki for more information. You can also check out the full legalese and requirements of each board position in our bylaws.
