Moving Higher and Higher

The 80+ members of the Society for Marketing Professional Services (SMPS), Virginia Chapter have elected NXL’s own Emily Ripka, CPSM as their Vice President/President Elect!

SMPS Virginia is a member of the national SMPS. Representing over 6,800 marketing and business development professionals from architectural, engineering, planning, interior design, construction and specialty firms throughout the US and Canada, SMPS is the only organization dedicated to creating business opportunities in the A/E/C industry. SMPS’s mission is to advocate for, educate, and connect leaders in the building industry.

When asked why she sought election, Emily replied that “…the education and networking that SMPS provides is important, and has been extremely beneficial to my personal and professional growth. I have served in many different roles during my time as a member, and have seen the difference that a dedicated President (and Board) can make on the organization as a whole. I would like the opportunity to become more involved and play a key role in the growth and development of our chapter. VP / President Elect is a three year term (VP, President, Past President) and I know that in that time, I can help shape our Chapter to become bigger, better, and help benefit our current members.”

Congratulations Madame Vice President! You make all of us at NXL very proud!
