Special Conferences

In addition to the annual international conferences, the SMS has responded to membership interest in special topics through its introduction of a series of smaller, regionally based meetings addressing more specific industry or subject themes. These Special Conferences are typically co-organized between the SMS, an Interest Group and a group of local individuals.

We welcome ideas and initiatives for future events, please contact us at sms@strategicmanagement.net with questions or proposals.
