Wondering how to bring your professional development to the next level? Consider applying for the board of directors. 

SMPS Oregon is led by 13 SMPS members who volunteer their time to lead the chapter. The board is responsible for setting the strategic direction of the chapter. We strive to advance the professional and personal development of our chapter’s membership by growing our education and networking programs. Oregon’s board of directors also ensures the chapter remains fiscally responsible for our members today and in the future.

Plus – we have fun! Serving on the board is one of the best ways to connect with other members and learn together. It can be an enriching experience that gives you leadership and growth opportunities you may not have in your day job.

How Do I Apply?

Each year, the Nominations and Elections Committee, which is comprised of the current President, President-Elect, Immediate Past President, Secretary, and Treasurer, issues a Call for Nominations to our membership for various available Board of Directors positions.

Nominations may be made by individual members (self-nominations) or by petition.

Position descriptions and eligibility information can be found here. Nomination forms and questionnaires must be received no later than Friday, May 17, 2019.

Individual nominations will be evaluated by the Nominations Committee to ensure the candidates meet the minimum criteria and represent the best interests of our chapter and members.
