Make the most of your membership!

The greatest opportunity you have to make the most of your membership is to volunteer. SMPS Columbus is gearing up for the 2015-2016 program year and we want you to get in on the action! We are looking for engaged, motivated people to serve on committees and assist with special events. Undertakings and time commitments vary and are flexible, so there is something for everyone’s work and life schedules. This is an excellent way to get to know fellow SMPS members better and really find out all that SMPS has to offer. Please contact Amy Karnes, Chapter President (akarnes@ohioequities.com) to discuss the right fit and how you can get involved.

Want to get more involved?
