    Recurring Events

    SMPS has a dynamic calendar of events to not only educate our members but help them stay connected with each other and the community. In addition to our one-time-only special happenings, our recurring events are favorites among our members.

    Monthly Luncheons

    Top-notch speakers and great networking come together at our monthly lunch programs. Hosted by Dresslers, these events can be attended by both members and non-members.

    New Member Orientation

    A chapter favorite, the New Member Orientation held periodically throughout they year allows chapter leaders to engage with prospective members, sharing the best of SMPS Charlotte, while also promoting committee involvement.

    MIX Networking SOCIALS

    MIX (Marketing Information eXchange) socials are held at venues throughout the Charlotte metro area to encourage networking at lunch and after work hours.


    A chapter tradition, a percentage of our proceeds from our annual holiday social are donated to a local charity. This event encourages our members to give back to our community and to those in need during the holiday season!

    Year-End Volunteer Recognition

    With volunteer participation at an all-time high, this event honors the many talented and generous committee members who help make our chapter thrive.

    CPSM Study Group

    One of the most important steps you can take in your career as an AEC marketing or business development professional is to pursue your accreditation as a Certified Professional Services Marketer and the Charlotte Chapter wants to help you achieve it. Each year, the Chapter facilitates a study group for all interested members who intend to pursue their certification, and the next Study Group will begin this fall.

    Please consider joining us for our 2018-2019 Study Group.
