welcome to the greater oregon 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.


The Rance R. Willis Planner Development Scholarship Application Process For The SGMP 2020 National Education Conference (NEC) Is Now Open!

All Completed Applications Are Due By 5:00 Friday, December 6, 2019.

SGMP’s Gilmer Institute of Learning awards NEC scholarships to meeting planner members in order to increase planner attendance at the NEC. Increasing the number of planner members in attendance allows SGMP to improve the return on investment for our SGMP supplier and planner members through increased networking opportunities. SGMP scholarship recipients also benefit from the robust educational offerings provided at the NEC.

The scholarship is available to planners who would not be able to attend the NEC without this financial assistance. The scholarship funding is from revenue received from the silent and live auctions held during the NEC. Use the link below to apply.


GOSGMP Annual Education Conference Scholarship are also available.  Detailed information and applications will be coming soon.
