2018 SME Member Council

The SME Member Council was created in the fall of 2003 to lead the member engagement activities of SME's volunteer networks. It is responsible for assisting SME in recognizing and meeting the needs of its membership in a rapidly changing environment, building on the long-term SME strategic goals, strengthening local activities and formulating recommendations relative to SME membership recruitment, retention and engagement.

To learn more about the overall activities of their Member Engagement Initiative and about the Member Council subcommittees, visit sme.org/mei. SME members interested in being considered for a seat on the Member Council may apply by submitting an International Director/Member Council Candidate Application . We also encourage you to learn more about the SME Member Council by reading its monthly From the Desk of... e-newsletter.
