Each year SMPS Philadelphia recognizes members and member firms who have demonstrated their commitment and dedication to both the Philadelphia chapter and the A/E/C industry through their engagement, leadership, and resources.
At our year end in June, we handed out Chapter Awards to the following:
Donna Keller / Cracked Bell Award – Presented to a senior professional in our industry whose career and service to SMPS are highly regarded and of value to others. This year, the award was presented to a 10-year veteran of A/E/C, co-chair of the inaugural SMPS Northeast Regional Conference in Atlantic City, long-time volunteer of the Special Olympics and current Director of Communications with AIA Philadelphia. Congratulations Elizabeth Paul, CPSM our 2015 Cracked Bell Awardee!
Rising Star Award – This award is presented a member new to the chapter or industry who, through their achievements has demonstrated great potential as a consummate A/E/C marketer. This year’s award was presented to a 1.5 year member of the A/E/C marketing community who has made a clear and strong presence known in her short time participating with the chapter. She played a major role in coordinating our special event programs including our inaugural Marketing Communication Awards, Holiday Social and Volunteer Appreciation Event. Based on what we have seen in the short time we have known her, we are pleased to have presented our Rising Star Award to Laura McLaine, Marketing Manager with Nason Construction, Inc.
Most Valuable Participant (MVP) Award – recognizes the member who has attended the most events during the programming year and was awarded to Scott Hecht of Alliance Environmental Systems Inc.
Outstanding Supporter Award – recognizes the firm that was the most generous and frequent sponsor in support of SMPS Philadelphia’s mission during the programming year and this year was awarded to Wick Fisher White.
Please join us in congratulating all of our 2015 Award Winners!
