Event Overview

The event will feature presentations by leading capture and proposal experts. As always, the event is designed to give professionals, at every level of experience, the opportunity to build new skills, learn new perspectives, benchmark processes, and network with peers. The Disney® venue, service and food always provide a first-rate experience.

We traditionally have giveaway items for each attendee, as well as numerous highly-useful capture/proposal-related books, guides and other items to raffle off (free). There will also be a no-host, post-event social at a nearby venue.

40 Under 40 – Congratulations Heather Kirkpatrick!

Congratulations to our very own Membership / Recruitment Chair, Heather Kirkpatrick, on being honored in the inaugural class of APMP’s 40 Under 40!

“Recognizing proposal management professionals from around the world, APMP’s 40 Under 40 program celebrates winners’ accomplishments to date and future aspirations.

The program recognizes contributors who are young but have already made a noticeable impression on their companies and the overall profession. Hailing from around the world, the 2017 class features proposal managers noted for winning big, revamping processes, facilitating teamwork, and giving back to their communities.

This year, the winners will be acknowledged at APMP’s 2017 Bid & Proposal Con, the world’s largest annual gathering of bid and proposal management professionals, during the association’s Future of the Industry celebration and awards dinner, June 14 in New Orleans.”
