Save the date for September 18-20, 2019 as Colorado Springs, Colorado serves as the seasonal backdrop to this year’s SMPS Southwest Regional Conference.  Set in the shadows of one of the nation’s most iconic mountains, Pikes Peak, known for inspiring Katharine Lee Bates’ “America the Beautiful,” poem about purple mountains majesties, this geographic center of Colorado is also home to a variety of cultural, educational, and historical attractions. 

Now more known as Olympic City USA, Colorado Springs sits over one mile above sea level (6,035 feet to be exact) and some areas of the city are significantly higher.  The city consistently ranks as the No. 1 Best Big City by Money magazine, Outside Magazine’s #1 America’s Best City, and #2 on U.S. News’ list of most desirable cities.  It’s no wonder this metropolitan is home to a diverse population, from military service members to aerospace engineers, healthcare providers to thrill seekers, this city has something from everyone.  Above all, everyone is discovering just how far they can push their own limits of summiting the peak of innovation and discovery.

Please join SMPS Southwest Regional Conference this year, as we push you to the EDGE, to Educate, Discover, Gather, and Evolve personally and professionally here in beautiful, sunny Colorado Springs.
