The Canadian Society for Marketing Professional Services (CSMPS) is a non-profit society providing professional service providers and their marketers with opportunities for professional growth, education and networking.
CSMPS has a broad membership drawn from such areas as engineering, law, accounting, financial services, architecture, and management consulting.
What We Do
Our education and outreach efforts are designed to support the highly specialized function of the professional services marketer, delivering current, relevant support and education to help generate results in the workplace.
Today, CSMPS provides members with educational and networking opportunities to assist with the development of marketing skills and knowledge. We do this by providing our members with speakers breakfasts and lunches, peer group roundtable sessions.
Based in Vancouver, Canada, CSMPS was founded in 1988 by local executives interested in improving the specific skills set relating to professional services marketing. The membership soon expanded to include marketing coordinators, managers, directors, and professional service providers from a wide range of professional practice.
