A Founder's Day message from President Michelle Milligan
The initial organizational meeting for the Society of Government Meeting Professionals occurred on Oct. 29, 1981, in Washington, D.C. Founder Sam Gilmer presided over the meeting, and his efforts to create the Society were greatly assisted by Dave Dubois and Jim Horvath. As we celebrate 37 years as an organization, I believe our founders would be happy to see that we are still holding true to our original mission of providing education, resources and networking opportunities to our members. So, it is on Oct. 29 we remember the insight and hard work of our founding members that led to the creation of SGMP.
