What is the Silicon Valley Product Management Association (SVPMA) ?

SVPMA is a 16 year old, volunteer run, non-profit group that supports the product management community in Silicon Valley.  SVPMA has ~300 members and access to more than 5000 product management/marketing professionals.


What types of activities do you have?

Monthly events with guest speakers, 1/2 day workshops, social networking events, job fairs, and an annual self-organizing/organic all-day event called Product Camp Silicon Valley.


What type of speakers does SVPMA invite to present at its events?

Guest speakers are typically Directors or Vice Presidents of Product Management or other thought leaders within the Product Management community.

Instead of paying the registration fee to attend a single event, you can sign up for annual membership which provides many Member benefits.


Can I attend SVPMA events, even if I am not a product manager?

Absolutely!  We welcome anyone who is interested in the speaker, topic, company, or learning more about what product managers do.


How can I get more involved?

We have many open volunteer positions and a friendly board who can answer your questions.


Do your events ever sell out?

Yes, occasionally.  So please register early.
