The Month of Thanks

Appreciating the SMPS Foundation trustees.

November is the time I cherish as it is the month of Thanksgiving. I count among my many blessings the SMPS Foundation trustees. This group of professionals volunteer their time working tirelessly to make certain the SMPS Foundation operates smoothly and ultimately, delivers each SMPS member and the profession valuable research.

The SMPS Foundation has been hard at work to meet its mission: to discover, in an ever-changing marketplace, what makes A/E/C organizations successful in marketing and business development. Our purpose is to deliver research, marketing intelligence, and expert analysis to inspire success and improve bottom-line results for foundation stakeholders.In this month of thanks, let’s honor each one of SMPS Foundation trustees and personally thank them for their time and talent.
