Celebrating SMPS Seattle’s First Town Hall!

SMPS Seattle kicked off our first ever “Town Hall” on March 15 at the Waterfront Space Seattle. Members of the SMPS Seattle board of directors were front and center to share the exciting details about our new three-year strategic plan, as well as other new programs that are in the works to make your membership work even harder for you. If you weren’t able to make it, here’s a breakdown of the strategic plan’s three primary objectives that the board will strive toward from 2018-2020.

Over the last three years, the board successfully completed the last strategic plan, which was developed around building an improved and sustainable foundation for the chapter. With that accomplished, this next plan is focused on taking the chapter to the next level through our three main objectives initiatives: 1) connect with content; 2) engage with members and the A/E/C industry; and 3) maintain the chapter’s infrastructure. We created this plan directly from the feedback we received from you, our members.

From you, we heard that there was a need to elevate the content we were providing to offer practical and business-driven resources that help fuel marketing and business development within our companies. We also heard that our members wanted to find new ways to be engaged and engage with others in the built environment. We hope to find new ways to engage our volunteers, offer tools that provide direct benefits to your daily jobs, and maintain a healthy financial and volunteer base that can sustain our chapter and help us offer more marketing and business development opportunities to our members.

As you’ll see in the handout, there are eight goals that we are driven to achieve. If we can be successful in carrying out our objectives, we believe we can accomplish these goals within three years. Overall, we will stay true to SMPS Seattle’s overarching vision: to be recognized as the resource for professional service firms to elevate the skills and results marketing and business development contributes to achieving strategic firm objectives. We hope you agree that the new strategic plan is prepped to engage more members and fuel our members with resources and a chapter that provides innovation, opportunity and information.

As a board, we are all very excited about this plan and the next level of opportunities we feel it brings to our membership. We hope you share in this excitement, and we encourage everyone to keep providing us with feedback and new ideas, and to get involved!
