SGMP looks to the future in Gilmer-Founders Day announcement
On the fourth Thursday of October, we celebrate Gilmer-Founders Day and our organization's 33rd anniversary. SGMP's history is not that of one single person, but it does start with a single vision. Back in 1981, our founders realized that none of the existing industry organizations addressed the unique needs of government meetings. Sam Gilmer's vision was simple: to create a society dedicated to government meeting planners and to provide them with the training and industry relationships to do a better job.
For more than three decades, SGMP's focus has always been to expand your expertise. Today, SGMP is providing even more membership value by aggressively supporting our new mission statement. We are building bridges across our industry and we are effectively communicating the value of government meetings to key industry and external audiences. These important new aspects are essential to your National Board's commitment to expanding your expertise while supporting and growing our membership.
And now, SGMP is thrilled to announce the impending launch of a redesigned and enhanced website and member database, which will be significant new components of the Board's ongoing dedication to providing our members with better service and timely information with which to grow our organization. SGMP will be contacting you very soon with detailed information on how to log in to access your enhanced member functionality and how you can register now for (or apply for a scholarship to) our 2015 NEC & Expo.
Keep an eye out for that email message
The SGMP mission is more relevant today than it has ever been throughout our proud history. Working together, we are making a difference across our industry and we are moving forward by creating an even brighter future for our members.
