2021 Chapter Leadership Symposium (CLS)

The 2021 Chapter Leadership Symposium (CLS), dubbed the chapter leadership event of the year, took place April 21-22 for all chapter presidents-elect and chapter program leads.

For more than 20 years, SMPS HQ has hosted an annual event for incoming chapter presidents: the Presidents’ Leadership Symposium. Starting in 2020, we enhanced the program to provide training for both incoming chapter presidents and chapter program leads.

This premier event focuses on developing the leadership skills of chapter board leaders and ensuring an awareness of the resources available to chapters through SMPS HQ.

For 2021, all CLS sessions will be made available on-demand to all chapter volunteers following CLS. We look forward to another chapter leadership event in Spring 2022.


The committee members developed content-rich programming that elevated the CLS experience, providing attendees both professional and personal growth opportunities.

Meet the committee and hear their thoughts on CLS and beyond!
