We are looking for excellence! Do you have a government meeting colleague to recommend? Nominate a peer for the Sam Gilmer Planner of the Year or Supplier of the Year award. These two awards are the highest distinctions offered by the Society of Government Meeting Professionals (SGMP). SGMP leaders realize the coronavirus (COVID-19) is affecting everyone's lives, and your family and business priorities take precedence. So, we have extended the nomination period for the 2020 Sam Gilmer Planner of the Year and Supplier of the Year awards for two additional weeks. The extended deadline is now Friday, April 3, 2020, at 5 pm ET.
