If you are a marketing professional or are responsible for marketing and business development in the professional services industries, there is no better way to take your career and knowledge base to the next level than by earning your Certified Professional Services Marketer (CPSM) certification. The foundation of study for the CPSM certification is the Markendium, an SMPS body of knowledge that is the comprehensive educational resource for the successful practice of marketing and business development in the A/E/C industry.

Markendium Prize Give-Away Raffle:  Each registrant in attendance will receive the opportunity to win a free print version of MARKENDIUM, which includes all six books in the Domains of Practice!

During this half-day power session, several veteran CPSMs will present content in each of the six domains, and practice exam questions and handouts will be available to help equip you with the knowledge and strategies to pass your exam. Advance your career, your company, and your potential in the A/E/C arena at our upcoming CPSM Boot Camp!
