Is membership with SMPS on an anniversary or annual basis?

Membership with SMPS is based on your anniversary date.

How do I get my username and password for the SMPS/MySMPS sites?

A member can click Forgot Username or Forgot Password to generate an email to change information. The email response may go to your spam folder or junk mail, so please check if email isn’t received in your inbox within in a few minutes. Or, please contact SMPS Headquarters at 703.549.6117 for assistance during office hours.

How do I update my contact information?

Log in and then hover over the Membership tab, and select My Account. On the left side of the page, choose the information you wish to update.

Can an SMPS membership be transferred?

Yes, an SMPS membership may be transferred to another individual through the original expiration date by the firm that paid for the membership. The membership essentially “splits.” The individual who left the firm may continue their membership through the original expiration date at well.

To transfer an SMPS membership, please complete the online SMPS Transfer Form.  Please allow up to 48 business hours for processing. Once processed, an email confirmation welcoming the member to SMPS is sent.

May I join two SMPS chapters?

An SMPS member may only be affiliated with one SMPS chapter.  However, an active member may attend events at any SMPS chapter at the membership rate, except when special event restrictions are set in place by a chapter. We suggest contacting the chapter membership chairperson to ensure member-discount pricing for the event.

How do I access the membership directory?

The SMPS Member Directory can be found at MySMPS. Members are required to login first. The Directory tab helps members locate and learn about other SMPS members. Find a Member option lets you search the directory for other members by using first name, last name, company name, or email address. You can choose to do a more detailed Advanced Search, which gives you access to more detailed search criteria including location, chapter, firm’s primary discipline, company services, firm size, and more.

Does SMPS provide member email addresses to third-party vendors?

SMPS does not provide member e-mail addresses to third-party vendors. However, SMPS may send out an occasional e-mail on a third party’s behalf. In addition, third-party vendors may sometimes send e-mails on our behalf to people who are not on the SMPS list. In these instances, SMPS does not have access to the third party’s e-mail addresses and recipients will not be added to the SMPS list.

How do I change my community subscriptions (email settings) in MySMPS?

Within MySMPS, click the MyProfile tab to access the My Subscriptions tab to edit subscriptions.
