GROW with SMPS Oregon

September 16, 2020
4:00 PM - 5:30 PM


In times of crisis, it may be hard for professionals to know where to begin. The Society for Marketing Professional Services Oregon offers many resources to support marketers, business developers, and firm owners in building their businesses and advancing their careers: from business contacts, to publications, professional development programs, samples, and tools, to opportunities to get more involved in the A/E/C community and hone their leadership skills.

At this event, you will:

  1. Meet SMPS Oregon’s Board of Directors – marketing and business development leaders from across the industry.
  2. Learn about SMPS Oregon’s upcoming events in 2020/2021 (hint: we’re going virtual!).
  3. Learn about the resources we offer members and nonmembers to transform their business through marketing leadership during times of crisis and beyond.

Interested in joining a committee or being more involved this year? At this virtual event learn more about SMPS and what it can do for your professional development. We have a great year planned with educational events, program events and networking opportunities and the volunteer-led committees are always looking to add new members. By volunteering, you can unlock your leadership potential by planning events, working with your marketing and business development peers, building new relationships (essential during this new virtual world), and so much more! Board members and current committee members will be at GROW to share about the opportunities available with SMPS.

CREW Portland February Program - Connecting & Empowering Women

Thursday, February 11, 2021 | 10:00 AM – 11:30 AM

CREW Portland is excited to host a unique and compelling discussion centered around connecting women and empowering them to push boundaries and break glass ceilings. We’ll highlight a collaborative project between local architecture, engineering design, and construction firms as they have teamed up with Union Gospel Mission (UGM) to create a welcoming, safe, and healing home for women and children focused on recovering from past traumas and breaking free of destructive choices through UGM’s LifeChange program.
