• 2014 SMPS Southern California Salary Survey
  • Monday, December 1st, 2014
  • 12:00 am to 12:00 am
  • Online – see “Purchase Now” link below

  • About the Report
    In early 2014, the three SMPS South­ern Cal­i­for­nia Chap­ters (Los Ange­les, Orange County and San Diego) launched a salary sur­vey that was answered by 250+ AEC mar­ket­ing pro­fes­sion­als in our region.

    The infor­ma­tion cap­tured in this report reflects AEC-industry spe­cific salaries, bonuses, perks, and other key data impor­tant to SMPS mem­bers. It rep­re­sents the many roles served under the umbrel­las of mar­ket­ing and busi­ness development.

    Note to Survey Participants
    An email will be sent to all survey participants (whether an SMPS/LA member or non-member) who provided their email address upon completion of the survey. If we have inadvertently omitted you from this list, please contact Juanita Martinez. She will be able to confirm if you were a survey participant or not.

    How to Order
    If you are a mem­ber of SMPS Los Angeles, please order the report using the “Pur­chase Now” link (found below). If you are a mem­ber of Orange County or San Diego, please place your order through their web­site. Pro­ceeds go to the Chap­ter where you order your report, and we ask that you make your pur­chase through the Chap­ter you most reg­u­larly support.

    Please do not share this survey with others as we are charging non-members and non-survey participants a nominal fee. Revenue generated helps us continue to offer great programming and educational opportunities for our members.

  • Sometimes two things that should have a natural affinity seem so far apart. What you tell your marketing team to give a client is sometimes vastly different than what you imagined. Teach your team – first hand – on what clients want and look for in a submittal. Join Jeff Averill, UCLA Campus Architect to hear what works and what doesn’t. Other academic institutions invited as part of the presentation.

    Note: This is meant as a teaching tool for young marketing professionals in the industry, (less than 5 years), to hear first-hand from the client what works and what doesn’t. You are encouraged to send your marketing coordinators to this seminar. There is limited seating.

    Jeffrey Averill, FAIA
