Fellows Recognition Program

SMPS Fellows represent the highest level of experience and leadership

About the Fellows Recognition Program

2017 Fellows Announced

The Fellows of SMPS represent the highest level of experience and leadership in marketing within the design and building industries. Fellows often serve as a resource to our chapters and the Society and provide insight, ideas, programs, and mentoring support. In addition, these individuals teach, write, and speak on marketing issues outside of SMPS, working to advance the profession of marketing professional services throughout the architectural, engineering, and construction industries.

The purpose of the SMPS Fellows Program is to recognize individuals who have made exceptional contributions to the profession of marketing and business development in the A/E/C industries and to the Society, and to encourage continued achievement and SMPS engagement by senior members. Only those recognized by this process will be entitled to use the FSMPS designation. The Fellows Recognition Program allows this honor to be bestowed by a panel of peers (the Fellows Jury) who evaluate each application individually.

The Program has the Following Goals:

  • Honor Outstanding Individuals. Individuals who are recognized as Fellows comprise a specially selected group of achievers who not only have access to programs tailored to their needs but also have the responsibility to accept leadership roles   in the Society and mentoring roles in the profession.
  • Use the Talents of Fellows. Fellows are expected to serve as leaders and mentors through activities such as:

• writing articles for industry periodicals, including Marketer, or by contributing to research and/or other body of knowledge-related resources
• serving as mentors to individuals
• serving in leadership positions at the Society, regional, and chapter levels of SMPS
• promoting SMPS to all contacts within the industry

  • Meet the Needs of Fellows. Education, networking, and social events will be offered exclusively to Fellows, who will define the leadership and management issues to be addressed in their professional development.

Qualifications to Apply:

  • SMPS members who have been active in the Society for at least 10 years of the previous 15 consecutive years
  • 15 years experience as a marketer and/or business developer in the A/E/C industries
  • Have held a current CPSM certification designation for a minimum of five years

The Fellows Jury appointed annually to consider candidates will have full authority to rule on the qualifications and eligibility of any candidate during their consideration of applications. The SMPS headquarters staff will implement and manage the program. New Fellows are honored during Build Business, the SMPS annual conference and recognized in Marketer, the Society’s bi-monthly journal.
