SMPS Atlanta strives to support and provide opportunities for our members to advance in their careers. We are proud to award an annual CPSM Scholarship to one member of the organization who is committed to continuing their learning and growth.

The scholarship provides $1,000 to apply to the below:

  • Testing Fees
  • SMPS MARKENDIUM: The Essentials (Volumes 1-6)
  • CPSM Study Guide


Scholarship applications will be available during the summer and will be announced at the Year End Finale.



Recognizing the need to provide current chapter members with an additional opportunity to pursue ongoing professional development, SMPS Atlanta is offering a scholarship to cover the registration fee for the 2020 conference. The scholarship applicant must be a current member in good standing of SMPS Atlanta of at least one year.

Peter Lyon was a treasured member of our SMPS family and a mentor to many in our industry. Peter joined SMPS in 1979 and transitioned to Emeritus Member status in 2017 upon his retirement. Peter began his service to SMPS in the Atlanta Chapter in 1982 and served as President of both the Atlanta and Central Florida chapters. He was one of the major forces behind the launch of the SMPS Southeastern Regional Conference and chaired the first two SMPS SERC events (1984-85 and 1988-89). SERC held a special place in his heart and it's no surprise that he came back from his retirement to volunteer at our registration/information desk, helping to manage the record number of attendees at our growing conference.
