Come to Huntsville to Connect
Ever wondered why Huntsville is referred to as the Rocket City? The nickname comes from the city’s close association with space missions. Huntsville is home to the:
- Army’s Redstone Arsenal,
- NASA’s Marshall Space Flight Center,
- U.S. Space & Rocket Center, and
- Space Camp.

Re-launch Your Career in Huntsville
If your career needs a boost after the uncertainty of last year, you owe it to yourself to reconnect with your peers across the country and make SGMP your professional home base. The 2021 National Education Conference offers the professional development and connections you need to aim higher.
If you need to make the case to your supervisor, we have letters to communicate the value of attending. The education sessions we offer will count toward your CGMP and CMP certifications. Consider adding on the CGMP Course to receive your Certified Government Meeting Professional designation, too.
Network at 2021 NEC In-Person
The 2021 NEC opening reception kicks off the conference each year. This year the Huntsville-Madison County Convention and Visitor’s Bureau is hosting the opening reception at the Davidson Center for Space Exploration located at the U.S. Space and Rocket Center! Attendees will reconnect, meet one another and dance the night away under the Saturn V Rocket while in the “Rocket City”! If you weren’t aware, the Saturn V Rocket is one of only three in the world, and it is massive!
The U.S. Space & Rocket Center is a popular attraction in Huntsville because it has one of the largest collections of rockets and space memorabilia on display anywhere in the world. The museum is a Smithsonian Affiliate and the Official Visitor Center for NASA’s Marshall Space Flight Center.
Of course there will be other opportunities to network during the conference whether you attend in person or virtually.
