SGMP Announces Top Young Professionals Under 37 During Government Meeting Professionals Month
10/31/2019
The Society of Government Meeting Professionals (SGMP) announced the honorees of the Top Young Professionals Under 37. The campaign recognizes emerging talent among government meeting professionals. Ten professionals from across the United States were selected for the honor and were nominated by their peers.

“As the government meetings workforce welcomes new generations of professionals, we aim to connect them with a vibrant community of peers who are involved with government meetings at all levels. It is of utmost importance we identify young talent early,” said SGMP National President Michelle Milligan, CGMP. “The meetings field is evolving at an ever-faster pace, which is why we believe that growing young talent in our chapters and national leadership can keep the Society on course for a bright future. Diversity, among backgrounds and generations, makes organizations thrive.”
