Why Attend?

Hear from past attendees and learn why they keep coming back to the National Education Conference year after year.
"Being a SGMP member will allow you meet and work with planners and suppliers you may not otherwise meet. Once I became a member, I began meeting and working with planners from all over the world. I’ve secured new leads, bookings and built everlasting relationships with new and current members. Since joining, I’ve also obtained my CGMP, GMS and was elected to serve on the Gilmer Institute of Learning Trustees. These certifications along with other membership benefits such as: National Education Conference and Tradeshow, access to SGMP website, complimentary subscription to Government Connections magazine, chapter meetings and resources are just a few reasons to join. Lastly, aside from all the aforementioned ROI, another benefit of being a member is the opportunity to host the annual NEC in your city!" ~ Erica Bradford, CGMP, SGMP, Rocket City Alabama Chapter
