Give the Gift of Membership

Melissa Dotcher
“When my student membership was about to expire, I knew I couldn’t afford to pay the full cost. As a great surprise to me, 2012 SME President LaRoux Gillespie sponsored my membership through the Member Bridge Program. His generosity is one of the reasons I'm still with SME today.”
