Meet peers and professional customers on a professional and social basis. Join others on an SMC Committee, which invites participation by all members. Seize the opportunity to get the work with people you want to meet and do business with. All SMC functions are preceded by a networking hour.
Education & Training
Increase your effectiveness and stay on top of changing trends through practical sales training programs, national certification and motivational speakers.
