About Us

Welcome to the Georgia Peach SGMP website. It is with pleasure that I welcome you to the Georgia Chapter of the Society of Government Meeting Professionals. We are an association of meeting professionals consisting of planners and suppliers. Our planners are government and contract government planners and our suppliers range from hoteliers to those who provide services to planners from videographers to speakers.

If you are a planner or supplier and you are interested in joining our chapter, please contact our membership committee for details.

SGMP is a nonprofit, professional organization whose members are planners from federal, state, county and local government entities and providers of meeting services and facilities. Our objectives are to enhance the quality and promote the cost-effectiveness of government meetings. Improving the knowledge base and expertise of individuals in the planning and management of government meetings is achieved by offering educational opportunities at chapter and national levels. SGMP also provides a platform for the discussion of mutual objectives and industry accepted practices for conducting meetings of the government.

The Atlanta Chapter of SGMP was chartered in September 1986.

The Atlanta Chapter has been very active, focused primarily on monthly educational programs and featuring guest speakers and member-conducted, innovative professional training. Community service projects, local and regional educational conferences, CMP study groups, Silent Auctions, and a variety of member social activities round out a typical chapter year.
