SGMP has long been the primary source of professional development for government meeting professionals -- our mission and objectives have always prioritized professional development. SGMP formed the Gilmer Institute of Learning to provide support to our members and chapters through professional development opportunities. The CGMP program represents the pinnacle of our Society's education.
