About CLS

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 Chapter Leadership Symposium (CLS) took place as a virtual training program for the chapter presidents-elect and chapter program leads.

This premier event focused on developing the leadership skills of chapter board leaders and ensuring an awareness of the services and programs available to all SMPS chapters.

The SMPS board of directors, staff, and the CLS committee discussed the Society’s mission, the vital role chapters play in delivering value to members, and the resources available to chapters through SMPS HQ.
