What I love about SMPS Atlanta

"SMPS is my home base. It is where I launched myself first as a marketer, then as a business developer. The best way I have ever spent my time was working on a committee and getting to know people in a smaller group. Several of those marketing peers that I served with over 12 years ago as a new member are now some of my closest friends. SMPS is at the core of everything I do. If I didn't learn it from SMPS, I most certainly learned it from an SMPS member!"
