The Sales & Marketing Council (SMC) is comprised of nearly 300 members engaged in areas of sales and marketing of new home construction. Whether you're a Realtor, onside sales agent, product supplier or designer the SMC offers programs and opportunities to elevate your business and professional career. In 2018 the council was named "Sales & Marketing Council of the Year" by the National Sales & Marketing Council. This prestigious award exemplifies the superior value of the council's membership.
The council provides monthly and bi-monthly meetings and programs for industry professionals to exchange ideas, network and learn new selling techniques. The council honors the best work of marketing, design and sales professionals in Tampa Bay’s building industry through the Awards of Excellence event in November. Members will receive subsidized costs to programs and events and access to member-exclusive opportunities. A membership with the Tampa SMC also gives you access to the Florida SMC and the National SMC benefits. A company membership must be established through the Tampa Bay Builders Association to be eligible. SMC membership is $130 annually. To join, please contact Erin Maguire, 813-571-8222 ext. 303.
