Committees

Communications

Visibility, credibility, appeal and membership of the OC Chapter all depend on our Communications Committee. Volunteers can participate in a wide range of activities: website maintenance, social media, eBlasts, newsletter/Blog, campaign development and mailing list management.

Membership

Improving our programs, education, special events, and networking forums requires us to build, keep and strengthen our membership base. Volunteers play a crucial role recruiting and retaining members, serving as ambassadors to non-members at events, and helping new members become assimilated with all the resources, including mentoring, that we offer as a chapter.

Education

A core tenet of SMPS is providing the educational resources professional services marketers need to grow their companies, and their careers. Volunteers are needed so we can provide a greater range of Educational programs to meet the needs of both junior and senior level professionals, in both marketing and business development.

Mentorship

Benefits of mentoring are mutual. Mentors learn to work with others, providing guidance and information. Proteges discover how to define their individual goals and find ways to achieve them. Since the expectations of each individual will vary, mentors work with their proteges to develop a flexible relationship that responds to each person’s needs.
