Sponsorship Opportunities

Event sponsorships

In the 2018-2019 year, SMPS‐Oregon plans to present events that may be sponsored by companies or other organizations. 

Programs – in November, March, June

Program events typically attract 200 or more attendees, drawn there by high‐level panelists representing project owners, developers, policymakers and others who impact or are impacted by A/E/C.
