SSPI Northeast - Satellite Professions International

Make Connections

SSPI’s local Chapters and Affiliates provide members with opportunities to advance their careers through information sharing, outreach and professional networking in an informal social setting. Local meetings — which frequently include facility tours and presentations from industry leaders — are also premier educational opportunities. And it is through local participation that satellite professionals deepen those relationships and demonstrate their commitment to the industry.
