Welcome to SMPS Upstate New York


Business Transformed Through Marketing Leadership


To advocate for, educate, and connect leaders in the A/E/C industries. 

SMPS is the only organization dedicated to creating business opportunities in the A/E/C industry. Companies tap into a powerful national and regional network to form teams, secure business referrals and intelligence, and benchmark performance. The Society for Marketing Professional Services was created in 1973 by a small group of professional services firm leaders who recognized the need to sharpen skills, pool resources, and work together to create business opportunities. Today, the SMPS has a membership of 7,000+ marketing and business development professionals from architectural, engineering, planning, interior design, construction, and specialty consulting firms located throughout the United States and Canada. The Society and its chapters benefit from the support of 3,700 design and building firms, encompassing 80% of the Engineering News-Record Top 500 Design Firms and Top 400 Contractors.

The Upstate New York Chapter serves marketing professionals throughout Upstate New York, from Buffalo to Albany, from the North Country to the Southern Tier. The chapter has more than 60 members from the state’s leading AEC firms. We offer our members networking opportunities, professional development, leadership opportunities, and marketing resources to help advance your career and position your firm. Our chapter offers a range of programs each month, at locations throughout the state. Major programs are generally held in centrally-located Syracuse, and metro-based programs are held in Rochester, Albany, Syracuse, Ithaca and Buffalo.
