Fellows Recognition Program

Call for Applications Opens January 25, 2023
Deadline: May 12, 2023
Fellows Program Overview

SMPS Fellows Program honors outstanding 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.

Individuals who are recognized as Fellows are part of 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.

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.

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.

Eligibility to become an SMPS Fellow:

    • Updated for 2023: 15 years of A/E/C or marketing/business development experience
    • Updated for 2023:  current CPSM designation
    • Be a member of SMPS for at least 10 of the previous 15 consecutive years and be a member in good standing
    • A completed and detailed application with education, work history, contributions, candidate statement, and letters of recommendation.
