Give Back and Spring Forward

Greetings, all!

Ah, spring! The temperatures are warming, the trees and flowers are blooming, and my sinuses are pounding. All kidding aside, this is arguably my favorite time of the year. There’s a freshness to everything and a desire to start new projects, even if the old ones are unfinished. It’s a time for new starts and new directions.

One of the most rewarding decisions I’ve made was to get involved in SMPS at the Society level. SMPS has been a driving force in my career and volunteering is a chance to give back and grow my leadership skills. I’m so grateful that I took that step.

As always, we thank all of you–our members, firms, chapters, and regional conferences who have donated to the SMPS Foundation and believe in the work we do. If you’re interested in helping our efforts, I invite you to make a tax-deductible* donation. Your support will directly contribute to the development of future initiatives that support the A/E/C industries and professionals like you.  Here are three ways to make a contribution:

Text2Give:  To participate, text “Give 25” (to give $25, but you can enter any amount) to 703-991-6181 and follow the prompts. You do not need to include the $ character.

Check the Box: When you receive your annual SMPS membership dues renewal, simply check the box to give to the SMPS Foundation.

Donate online: Visit the SMPS Foundation webpage and support the foundation by making a donation.

Happy Spring!
