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 2016-2017 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 Katie Burgess, Chapter President (kburgess@elford.com) to discuss the right fit and how you can get involved.

Want to get more involved? Join the Communications Committee! Get creative with the Communications Committee, where there are a lot of fun volunteer opportunities that relate directly to your job - from social media, website updates, newsletter articles and graphic design, there are many opportunities and we'd love to have you! Please contact Linda Skelton, Communications Director (lskelton@pattersonpope.com) for more information.  

Have a great idea for the Chapter? Please do not hesitate to reach out to the president or any of the board members and share your experiences, suggestions, and ideas for the future of the chapter. We are only successful if you are successful. Contact us!
