    Greetings Members and Friends of SMPS Research Triangle Chapter,

    In the 2020-2021 year I want your SMPS experience to be one that builds on our chapter history of providing high-quality programming and educational opportunities.  Despite the challenges of the global pandemic, your Board is dedicated to delivering  professional growth opportunities for you! 

    Without our members we would not exist.  We commit to giving you a worthwhile return on your investment – be it your membership, your sponsorships, your volunteer time or your engaged program attendance.

    We thank you for your continued support of SMPS and hope that you will reach out to any of us on the Board with suggestions, constructive feedback or just to get to know us better.  Virtual is not our preferred as an organization, but we will leverage this situation to make it the best that it can be.

    Thank you for your confidence and the opportunity to serve as your SMPS Research Triangle Chapter President this year. I look forward to our Chapter’s positive achievements and continued growth.


    Pat Perkins, 2020-2021 Chapter President
    SMPS Research Triangle
