New Member Challenge!
Get involved, get engaged, earn $50!
This CHALLENGE will introduce you to SMPS and to the many benefits of membership. Within the first six months of your membership, we CHALLENGE you to make the most of the SMPS experience by:
• taking advantage of great educational programming,
• growing your personal network, and
• becoming an active member of your local chapter!
The CHALLENGE is simple, complete the six tasks detailed in the scorecard within the first six months of your membership and we will mail you a $50 gift card! All new members receive a welcome packet in the mail within 7-10 business days of joining. Included in the welcome packet are materials about the CHALLENGE and a printed copy of the scorecard (with tips).
