Are you looking to learn, grow and have fun? SMPS Seattle is the place for you.

The Society for Marketing Professional Services (SMPS) is a supportive community of marketing and business development professionals. The Seattle Chapter has been helping Puget Sound Region marketers and business developers succeed in the architecture, engineering and construction industries (A/E/C) since 1983. With 310 members, it is currently the largest chapter in the nation.

In 2015, SMPS National awarded the Seattle Chapter first place in the 'Striving for Excellence' Extra-Large Chapter category, in recogntion of excellence in their management and service to members. Members and Non-Members alike benefit from the vast amount of educational, networking and scholarship programs SMPS Seattle offers. The chapter is a vibrant and powerful network for A/E/C professionals at all stages of their careers. 

Nationally, SMPS began in 1973 when a small group of professional service firm leaders recognized a need to sharpen their skills, pool resources, and work together to help tackle the complexities of marketing, in a time when marketing wasn't acknowledged as a significant component of professional service firms. Today, SMPS has more than 6,500 members who are active in 60 chapters across the United States and Canada. It is the only non-profit marketing organization dedicated to creating business opportunities and enhancing the careers of marketing professionals in the A/E/C industries.
