Helping write potential questions for the CPSM exam provided me with a greater, more in-depth knowledge of all of the aspects of marketing and business development. It strengthened my knowledge and skills as a professional services marketer for the A/E/C industry and I got to meet a CPSM in another state with who I can now collaborate.
Once certified, I’ve enjoyed the access to the national CPSM list serve of peers. Having other knowledgeable CPSM’s as resources for everything from research to RFP’s, from staffing to strategy, puts additional valuable arrows in my (and my firm’s) marketing quiver.
SMPS is the only reason I have the position and the A/E/C career success that I have today. Without the networking opportunities, the chance to lead the local chapter through volunteering, and the practical marketing and business development tips I’ve learned from SMPS, I’d still be where I started seven years ago. Thank you SMPS for giving my career the boost it needed!
I’ve made key connections and gained invaluable knowledge through my involvement with SMPS. Attending programs, utilizing resources and participating on committees has directly contributed to successes in my career. SMPS is beneficial to professionals at every point in their careers. It’s not ‘just networking’, it’s not ‘just education’. SMPS is the whole package.
As the only marketing professional at an A/E firm, it is important for me to connect with outside marketers to continue to learn and grow in this field. SMPS has always been a great marketing resource for me. As a member, I have access to books, webinars, and the MySMPS knowledge database, which connects marketing professionals across the nation. But what has really driven my involvement and grown my network has been serving as a committee member and member of the board. I have connected with so many great people who have helped me to develop my skills as a marketer in the A/E/C industry.
