Society of Government Meeting Professionals

Improving the quality of government meetings

Since 1989, the Greater Oregon Chapter of the Society of Government Meeting Professionals (GOSGMP) has been dedicated to improving the knowledge, expertise, and cost effectiveness for individuals responsible for planning and managing government meetings through education, communications, and industry relationships.

GOSGMP is one of 32 chapters of SGMP, joined together in the mission of providing quality meeting planning education, training, and networking opportunities for meeting planners and suppliers. We are a non-profit professional organization comprised of professionals involved in planning government meetings, either on a full or part-time basis, and those individuals who supply services to government planners.
