A Letter from the President (2014-2015)

I have been honored to serve as your Chapter President for the 2014-2015 programming year. Our chapter is comprised of a group of the most talented individuals in our industry. When we gather together, we make great thing happen.

Moving forward into the coming year, I encourage each of you to become more involved with SMPS by attending luncheon programs, the #AECsofmarketing educational programs, special events, CPSM certification study classes, and most importantly, serving on a committee. Additionally, the October 16th half-day conference in Pittsburgh, “Hammer Home More Business”, will prove to be both educational and entertaining. The more you engage, the more you maximize the value of your membership in SMPS.


I recently attended the SMPS National Conference in Los Angeles, CA. Through the programs, speakers, and networking opportunities, the conference provided new insight and ideas our chapter can use to nurture our members and grow our chapter. For anyone that has considered attending the national conference, but has not yet done so, GO!  It is an energizing experience that boosts growth in both your professional and personal life (save the date now for August 10-12, 2016 in Philadelphia).  This organization is YOUR champion for success.

I am very thankful for everyone that has participated in SMPS over the years. The board members have worked tirelessly to develop and execute top notch programming for AEC professionals in the Pittsburgh Region. I encourage you to reach out to them and express your appreciation, and also, your ideas and input for future programming. It takes every member of this Chapter to continue the success of SMPS Pittsburgh.

It has been an honor to serve as your Chapter President and I look forward to seeing you at our first program of the 2015-2016 year on September 23, 2015. Thank you for your support and participation.

Christy Lesnett
SMPS President 2014-2015
