The Society for Marketing Professional Services (SMPS), the premier A/E/C marketing and business development association, is pleased to announce that Judy Schriener has been bestowed the SMPS Honorary Fellow designation. She was honored at Build Business, the SMPS annual conference, during The Society Gala on Thursday, August 11, 2016.
In its second year, the Honorary Fellows program is a designation for extraordinary service. It is bestowed to an individual of esteemed character and achievements who supports the practice of marketing and business development within the A/E/C community. An SMPS Fellow may nominate a qualified individual for Honorary Fellowship. Nominations may also be accepted by a member of the SMPS board of directors or the CEO. An Honorary Fellow is not a current SMPS member or has not been a member of SMPS within the past 10 years.
For the past 30 years, Judy Schriener, award-winning journalist, author, and radio-show host, has leveraged her extensive experience to advance the marketing profession in the A/E/C industry.

Within a year, Schriener was writing a column for the Arizona Republic, the state’s largest daily newspaper. In 1989, she moved to New York to join McGraw-Hill, and after a stint in Washington, D.C., returned to the company. She spent 16 years within their construction publications group, eight as an editor at Engineering News–Record, covering business and technology. Schriener currently consults for an Arizona engineering firm and her radio show, “Off the Record with Judy” has been on the air for three-and-a-half years.
Within the SMPS community, she has been a contributor and supporter for decades. From conference speaker to public relations committee advisor, she has helped members and SMPS as a whole prosper.
