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 30 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.

Upcoming events

Join us in November!
Using Twitter and Facebook to promote sponsors at your event

Ed Bejarana, President of Zenith Exhibits, Inc.

Ed started his career as a software developer in 1990 and has helped thousands of companies reach more customers via the internet. With degrees in computer science and business operations, he brings a unique perspective to digital advertising—actions on websites do not necessarily translate to commerce. Human to human interaction facilitated by digital advertising does. During this session Ed will discuss how to use twitter to guide traffic at your events and promote special sponsors. He will also demonstrate using Facebook live to draw people to premium sponsors.
