Committee Spotlight - Communications

The Communications Committee keeps members and prospective chapter members up to date on all ongoing functions including educational and networking events, and helps celebrate members. The Communications Committee creates brand awareness for SMPS Atlanta through various communication efforts including the SMPS Atlanta website, fun graphics, blog articles, social media and weekly email blasts. In this fiscal year, the Communications Committee created SMPS Atlanta’s brand new website and created all new graphic materials to pair with the SMPS rebrand. In addition to managing the ongoing communication schedule, Communications Committee is responsible for executing all messaging out to members and coordinating closely with the board of directors on announcements.

Leading the vitally important Committee is Rachel Nix. Rachel has served as the Communications Committee director-at-large for the past four years. Rachel leads a Committee of eight marketing and graphic design professionals that help develop and execute communications on various platforms. Rachel is closely involved in all committee on-goings and coordinates with other board of directors on their essential messaging and scheduling of messaging.

SMPS Atlanta Diversity Awareness & Inclusion Statement

Dear fellow SMPS Marketers:

The world is changing. People here and abroad, in corporate America and organizations, are acknowledging the need for enhanced diversity and inclusion and we acknowledge it as well. At the SMPS Atlanta Chapter, we are taking strides to be a part of this global movement. In that spirit, our chapter is committed to this effort and breaking down any perceived barriers to inclusion by creating a culture that is enriching for all its members.

As an organization, our mission is to Advocate, Educate, and Connect our members. The SMPS Atlanta Chapter is dedicated to aligning this mission while promoting diversity awareness and inclusion in our industry:

  • Advocate - by being united as marketers in a common cause, regardless of race, and to be champions of change at our firms and in our communities.
  • Educate - to provide meaningful content to our members that will help advance careers within the industry.
  • Connect - to reach out and encourage our existing members of color to join committees and participate in more SMPS Atlanta events and activities.


This combination of our commitment to diversity and inclusion connected with our mission will take our chapter to new heights.
