SMPS Pittsburgh - COVID-19 Official Notice



SMPS Pittsburgh


SMPS Pittsburgh Members, Registered Guests, and Friends,

SMPS Pittsburgh continues to prioritize the health and safety of all of our members, volunteers, and guests. Due to the unprecedented and fluid situation surrounding the COVID-19 (Coronavirus) pandemic, effective immediately, SMPS Pittsburgh is postponing all events through the end of March. Members and guests who have already paid for these events will be contacted shortly and offered either the choice of a refund, or the opportunity to transfer their ticket to another event in the future. 

Our organization will continue to monitor this situation closely and will keep in touch as this ongoing situation continues to evolve. If this state of affairs continues beyond March, we have started strategizing ways that we can still provide value to our membership, including live streaming or recording events, providing more webinars, and more. 

Please keep in mind that although all events for SMPS Pittsburgh have been cancelled through the end of this month, our decision does not affect other national SMPS activities but is reflective of what our local region's leaders are advocating. If you are currently registered for other SMPS programs or conferences, we recommend that you reach out to The Society directly if you have any questions. 

We appreciate your continuing support of our Chapter and your patience as we continue to weather this ongoing situation. Do not hesitate to reach out to me directly if you have additional questions or concerns. Remember, elbow bumps are in and wash those hands! 

Very Best, 


Matt Kaufman, CPSM

President, SMPS Pittsburgh
