Files from the 2012 Mid-Year Meeting:
The SMTA Technical Committee is a network of professionals who help the organization build skills, share practical experience and develop solutions by assisting the organization in bringing educational opportunities to its members and industry professionals.
The time commitment for participation in the SMTA Technical Committee is minimal. We meet yearly at the SMTA International Conference and then again in the spring through a webinar. During these meetings, you will have the opportunity to actively participate in a discussion on the direction of our educational opportunities. You will also hear from the SMTA educational department throughout the year on specific issues relating to our programming.
Many of the SMTA Technical Committee members also participate on a Subcommittee for one of our educational offerings throughout the year (ICSR. IWLPC, SMTAI, Medical, Counterfeit, etc.). Please take a look at our calendar of education events to see if you would be interested in a specific conference. Then contact Patti Hvidhyld for more information.
