It's Government Meeting Professionals Month!

October is Government Meeting Professionals Month! 
SGMP is proud to launch the inaugural Government Meeting Professionals Month during October! This special month is our opportunity to raise awareness of the unique role that government meeting professionals play. The Fall/Winter 2018 issue of Government Connections magazine highlights the Top Young Professionals Under 37, a program that recognizes outstanding young professionals within SGMP.  Government Meeting Professionals Month culminates on October 29th, SGMP Founder's Day, the day Sam Gilmer held the first SGMP meeting in 1981.
Easy ways to join in:
  • Participate in the Government Meeting Professionals Month Twitter Chat on Thursday, October 18, at 7pm ET. Follow us on Twitter at @SGMPHQ for the latest details.
  • Share a picture or a status update on your favorite social media application and tag your chapter and SGMP! Use hashtags #GovernmentMeetings and #GovtMtgProfsMonth to follow along and see what your colleagues are posting! Follow SGMP National on Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, YouTube and Instagram.
