MEET A

MEMBER
WHAT DOES AN SGMP MEMBER LOOK LIKE?
SGMP members are professionals involved in the planning
and execution of federal, state and/or municipality meetings on
a full- or part-time basis. We are the only national organization
in the United States dedicated exclusively to government
meetings, and our objective is to improve the quality,
cost-effectiveness and impact of these meetings. We work
closely with our chapters to provide the best industry education
available. We leverage relationships with key industry partners to
expand and intensify knowledge of the fact that SGMP members
are creating significant value for the American taxpayer on a
daily basis.

BUT WHAT DOES AN SGMP MEMBER
LOOK LIKE?
THEY LOOK LIKE YOU AND ME.
THEY LOOK DIVERSE.
Diverse in geography. We are a society comprised of
members from every region of the United States. From the
Northern states to the Southern ones, and from sea to shining
sea. We live and work in college towns, in the nation's capital, in
major metropolitan cities and small rural communities. Our views
encompass mountain and desert landscapes. We can put our
toes in the sand or stand in awe in front of national monuments.
SGMP members are diverse in geography.

THEY LOOK LIKE YOU AND ME.
THEY LOOK DIVERSE.
Diverse in industry. We are a society comprised of sales
professionals, full-time government employees, contract

more. We represent hotels, universities, convention and visitor
bureaus, software companies, federal government agencies,

& reservation specialists to name a few. SGMP members are
