CLS, coming in April, will offer our chapter presidents-elect and chapter program leads a unique virtual experience that focuses on the leadership skills essential for chapter board leaders.

Access the Exclusive 2020 CLS Virtual Experience Program
For more than 20 years, SMPS HQ hosted an annual event for incoming chapter presidents called the Presidents’ Leadership Symposium (PLS). We enhanced the program and for the first time, the 2020 Chapter Leadership Symposium (CLS) took place as a virtual training program for the chapter presidents-elect 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.
