SMPS Advances: June 2023

SMPS Advances: August 2022

To provide transparency and expand member engagement, SMPS HQ provides an executive summary of the board of directors’ discussions and decisions following each regular meeting. The eight-member board of directors meets at least four times each fiscal year to fulfill its responsibility of governing the Society and advancing the strategic needs of our members, the organization, and the A/E/C marketing profession. The meeting typically also includes the SMPS Foundation president and the senior management staff.

Our volunteer leaders and several staff members met in person on June 12-24, 2023, in Traverse City, MI, for the board’s annual planning retreat. At this meeting, the discussion included topics such as the future of conferences, the role of print and digital media to develop and share knowledge, and they reviewed the business of the association. Additionally, new board members were welcomed and provided an orientation.

The next meeting is scheduled for September 2023.
