Heartland Regional Conference Needs You

SMPS Michigan is thrilled, honored and, like most Detroiters, humbled to host the 2019 SMPS Heartland Regional Conference in the city that we love! Hailed by The New York Times as “A comeback city set to make good on its promise,” the rest of the world is figuring out what we’ve known all along—Detroit is the place to be.

The 2019 SMPS Heartland Regional Conference Committee is looking for extraordinary leadership to participate as a Committee Chairperson or Committee Member. This is a great opportunity to hone your leadership skills, expand your network, flex your creative muscles and work with a fun group of likeminded individuals to create one of the most engaging regional conferences yet.

Interested in volunteering, complete this survey by November 27. 

Thank you!
