Advisory Board

History of SMPS Boston

The SMPS Boston Founders & Past Presidents Advisory Board (abbreviated as SMPS Boston Advisory Board) was launched in the fall of 2007 as a way to re-engage the Chapter’s founders and past presidents and to create an advisory board for the current Board of Directors.

SMPS Boston has a long and rich history as one of the leading SMPS Chapters. Many of its past presidents are in positions of senior management and can offer a unique perspective on industry trends, topics and access to high-profile speakers.

Advisory Board Overview

The SMPS Boston Advisory Board meets three times a year in the fall, winter and spring, as well as being invited to the summer planning sessions. The group is open to anyone who has served as an SMPS Chapter President and serves as an advisory council to the SMPS Boston Board of Directors.

The current Immediate Past President serves as the liaison between the SMPS Boston Board of Directors and the Advisory Board, sharing information and ideas between the two groups.

Some ways in which the SMPS Boston Advisory Board can help us to create a better and stronger Chapter include participating in the Mentoring Program, leadership development of the current Board of Directors, and outreach to new members.

Founders

In 1980, this group developed the SMPS Boston chapter, its charter, bylaws and processes.
