The Heart of SMG


Born in 2007, The Heart of SMG was designed as an employee recognition program paying tribute to the men and women who make SMG special by making a difference in the more than 200 communities in which we manage public assembly facilities.
Here in Jackson, we decided to take a different twist on the program. Rather than focus on the many individuals amongst us who freely give of their time to aid the community, we’ve decided to use The Heart of SMG as an umbrella brand and initiative for our teams focus on community outreach programs and activities. Heading into 2013, we’ve developed four community outreach goals for our team.

  • Strive to meet or exceed the City of Jackson’s targets for MBE/WBE participation in our contracted goods and services.
  • Develop an internship program that focuses on providing opportunities for Jackson area college students.
  • Adopt a local high school culinary or hospitality program.
  • As a team, develop or participate in community enhancement programs.

Check back from time to time for progress. Or make sure to sign up for our email alerts and we will send those updates, along with other news from the Jackson Convention Complex, directly to you.

Through The Heart of SMG program, we are committed to making a positive impact on Greater Jackson … one heart at a time.
