Q4 President's Message

Welcome to the SMPS New Mexico 2018-2019 Term!

For those of you I haven’t met, my name is Megan Mickey. I am the Director of Marketing and Business Development at Studio Southwest Architects and I am PUMPED to be your new Chapter President! This year marks the beginning of a new society brand, a simplified vision: Business Transformed through Marketing Leadership, and a fresh Board of Directors who are eager to inspire the New Mexico membership.

Last month the incoming Board held a strategy session to identify ways the Chapter can better Connect, Advocate, and Educate our local membership. We came up with some great ideas including opportunities for:

  • peer learning and mentorship,
  • ways to connect outside of the lunch programs,
  • skill development workshops, and more.

We will also focus on Elevating your SMPS Experience. There is a vast library of Marketing and BD resources at your fingertips! Resources that can help you position your firm for success and tools that can help advance your career. We want to make sure you know what these resources are and where they live on the mySMPS website. If you’re asking “What’s mySMPS?” you’re going to love what we have planned this years…

Get the most out of your membership by joining a committee. Seriously, the more you participate the more benefit you receive. We’re looking for help with ALL Committees so please reach out to me or any of our Board/Committee members.

The relationships formed through Chapter participation become more than just business contacts. We are each other’s greatest sources of strength and resource in this crazy world of A/E/C marketing. I have found tremendous benefit from the SMPS society and truly look forward to leading the Chapter this year.

So, whether you’re looking to develop a strategic plan, increase your interview win rate, strengthen your business development efforts, gain additional skills for your repertoire or just find support for the stresses of proposal deadlines, you’ll find it with SMPS New Mexico!
