About Us

    Comprised of Riverside and San Bernardino Counties, the Inland Empire is surrounded by mountain ranges and hills on all sides with only a few natural passes to Los Angeles, Orange, and San Diego Counties. The make-up of the typical SMPS IE member is one who embrace the inland area of Southern California as a place called home – a place where you can head to the ocean, to the mountains, or to the desert and be there in about an hour – and a place that is sunny, provides open space, and a small town atmosphere. Our members are AEC marketing professionals, each committed to building business, networking, learning, supporting each other, and having fun.

    The Inland Empire Chapter of SMPS was formed in 2017 by a group of eight professionals who saw the need for developing a chapter in the local area - one that supported the marketing professional and provided them with networking and educational opportunities. Currently our chapter boasts over 20 members from 20 different AEC firms located in one of the two counties we serve.

    SMPS is the only marketing organization dedicated to creating business opportunities in the A/E/C industry. SMPS represents a dynamic network of 7,000+ marketing and business development professionals working to secure profitable business relationships for their design and building companies. 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. Learn why you should join SMPS today!
