EDI Committee Seeks Chair & Volunteers

The next step in SMPS Seattle’s Equity, Diversity & Inclusion (EDI) journey is upon us! We are proud to announce the formation of an EDI Committee, and hope you will consider joining. This is a members-only opportunity to collaborate with a group of 10-12 peers, one of which will be selected Chair, to develop strategies and activities to strengthen and sustain inclusivity, diversity, and equal access to opportunities in our chapter and in the broader A/E/C industry.

The EDI Committee will work in tandem with the chapter Board of Directors. Together we aim to get educated, level set, and center our voices! Members of this exciting new committee must embody the chapter’s values, mission, and culture, and be prepared to devote a minimum of 6 hours per month for standing meetings and associated tasks.

If you’d like to learn more, plan to attend our exploratory meeting on Tuesday, February 23 from 3:00–5:00pm. Email Liz Wasson Coleman, SMPS Seattle President-Elect at [email protected] to RSVP.

Marketing Compensation & Metrics Survey

Now's the time to find out how your compensation and benefits package compares. SMPS members: If you've completed at least 40% of the survey questions (and all required questions), you have complimentary access to run filtered reports using the Compare tab and view Reports and Charts.  View our infographic for an overview of the results from the 2019 survey.

Become a CPSM

Are you an SMPS Member looking to expand your knowledge base? If so, consider taking the CPSM exam. Being a Certified Professional Services Marketer (CPSM) means that you have met a rigorous standard of expertise in marketing professional services.  For some, that equates to career advancement or increased compensation and benefits.  For everyone, this personal investment enhances your opportunity for professional success.

New! SMPS Seattle is now offering monthly study sessions hosted by Erin Hatch, CPSM AND we have CPSM Certification Reimbursements ($520) for members who pass the exam.  Funds are available annually on a limited basis.  Visit the scholarships page for more information.

Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion

The SMPS vision Business transformed through marketing leadership asserts that our profession can create powerful, positive change. By harnessing the passion of our SMPS members, we aim to advance racial justice and equality in our organization and in the broader A/E/C industry. Our first of many steps was an Open Conversation event on June 30, where we compiled information and resources generated by a robust discussion. If you have additional feedback or information regarding EDI initiatives for SMPS Seattle, please reach out. We are here for you, and we are listening.
