I have been a government meeting planner for a LONG time!  I have been member of SGMP for a LONG time!  Why have I been a member for so long...because SGMP delivers what they say the will...EDUCATION, NETWORKING, and RESOURCES.  There is no other place where I can go to get the training I need, the contacts I need, or the tools I need to enhance my job as a meeting planner, and to help me create cost effective meetings for my agency.  Not only does SGMP provide valuable job training, it provides personal and professional growth opportunities as well.  I have served on and chaired numerous Chapter committees.   I have served on and chaired numerous National committees.  I have served on my Chapter and the National Boards of Directors.  These experiences have provided me with amazing professional growth.  SGMP is a wonderful place to be if you want meeting planning education, it’s a wonderful place if you want career and personal development.
