Connecting our members to a new level of success.

Our members value our organization over all others.


What are your professional goals?   Networking?  Continuing Education?

If you are serious about your career and becoming more valuable to the marketplace, you've got to invest in quality associations with cutting edge speakers and targeted content. 

Our members tell us that SME is the most valuable group in their network.   


Taking you further.

Sales & Marketing Executives of Honolulu is a professional organization dedicated to ethical standards, continuing professional development, knowledge sharing, mentoring students and advancing free enterprise. As the only executive sales and marketing association in Honolulu, SME Honolulu fills a void by providing a personal and professional community devoted to providing knowledge, growth, leadership and connections between peers in both sales and marketing. Our organization provides seminars, lectures and networking opportunities however we are perhaps best known for our Salesperson of the Year event, which honors community leaders.

Monthly Dinner Meetings

Ten times a year we host a dinner meeting with engaging and informative speakers.  But we won’t be hurt if your main focus is the cocktail hour where we enjoy pre-meeting beverages and networking.  One member says it is his “ideal dinner party that [he] gets to have with up to 100 of Honolulu’s most prominent business contacts almost every month”.

Members only events

Occasionally we get exclusive access to special venues or are offered behind-the-scenes opportunities.  These events are reserved for members only and often include gifts, prizes and exclusive rewards. 


How to Become a Member

If you are a member of the sales and marketing profession, we’d like you to be a member of SME Honolulu.
