Award Programs

Our awards programs recognize marketers from all sectors of the A/E/C community and at all levels of experience.

Marketer of the Year

The Marketer of the Year is the top award given out by SMPS Atlanta. Award recipients have made a significant contribution and demonstrated leadership in the marketing of professional services through mentorship activities, professional development, SMPS involvement, work experience and references.

Nominations for this prestigious award are accepted annually, and the winner is determined by an independent panel of judges made of up SMPS members from a chapter other than Atlanta.

SMPS Atlanta members are invited to submit the name of another member who has not previously received this award and who meets these criteria or nominate themselves. Once nominated, the nominee will complete the application and submit for review.

Note: Current SMPS Atlanta board members are eligible.
