Society of Government Meeting Professionals Moves (SGMP) will transition from a brick-and-mortar facility to a virtual office environment. This move is effective from April 1, 2015, through June 30, 2016.
The association’s chapter leaders have long-been informed of the circumstances surrounding the long-term lease agreement and the financial restraints it imposed for its financial stability. The current headquarters status quo was simply not workable, and the organization now has secured a sublease agreement for its Alexandria, Va., office space for the entire suite for four years.
After a thorough review of all options available, SGMP decided that a telework environment—clearly the best solution among imperfect choices—makes the most sense. Despite a total change in office operations and culture for its dedicated staff, the organization’s leadership is embracing the opportunities that this arrangement will bring to SGMP.
The leadership is confident this action will best position SGMP on the right path for the Society’s long-term financial stability for its members. Its staff’s email addresses and phone numbers remain the same, but make note of this new mailing address:
