Southern Regional Conference

This year's Southern Regional Conference was well attended by the SMPS Austin Chapter. Members had the opportunity to network with groups from other chapters and learned from industry experts about how to improve their marketing and business development efforts. We will be highlighting some of these topics in the next few newsletters, so keep an eye out!

Thanks to everyone who participated in our 2014 Compensation Survey!  We appreciate your patience as we analyze and prepare the results.  We are currently putting the finishing touches on the report and expect it to be ready within the next month.  Results will be available for free to all current SMPS Members as well as everyone who completed the survey and received a confirmation code.

In my free time, I enjoy going to Pilates classes, taking my dog, Ranger, on long walks and to swim at the lake, catching up on my favorite TV shows, and sharing a nice bottle of wine with my friends.
