The Society of Government Meeting Professionals (SGMP) has always stood for equity, nondiscrimination, diversity and inclusion. Nevertheless, there is still more SGMP can do and more we can learn to make this a reality for all. As meeting professionals striving for the highest levels of professionalism and ethics, we recognize that we do not have all the answers. However, we take up the challenge to listen to all perspectives and commit to looking internally for more ways to be problem solvers and part of the solution.

The Gilmer Institute of Learning (GIL) is an important part of SGMP because the GIL trustees help set education programming, administer and fundraise for the scholarship program and oversee the Society's Certified Government Meeting Professional (CGMP) certification program. This spring, the Society elected three new trustees.
In celebration of 37 years the Society of Government Meeting Professionals went searching for the Top Young Professionals under 37.
