Build a solid foundation for success in one knowledge-packed day!

Join us for APMP-NCA’s Proposal Basics Boot Camp on April 11.

Are you new to proposal development? Do you have team members who are new to the arena? If so, keep your calendar(s) free on Monday, April 11. Because the Association of Proposal Management Professionals (APMP) – National Capital Area will give you the basic know-how and skills you need to make the most of your opportunities in 2011.

Register now—this event sold out last year!

If you are a proposal manager, writer, or coordinator—or someone who does it all—at one of these career stages, this program is for you.

  • New proposal practitioner with little or no experience in the industry
  • Proposal practitioner with one or two years of experience but with some knowledge or skill gaps to fill
  • More experienced proposal professional who is re-entering the field and needs a quick refresher

This could be the most productive day you’ll spend all year!

A generous morning of keynote sessions:

  • Business Development Lifecycle (Steve Shipley), an introduction
  • How to Read an RFP (Shlomo Katz and Judy Robinson), with tips on identifying federal acquisitions regulations
  • "Proposal Pictionary” (Mike Parkinson), an interactive session on creating graphics to make it easier for evaluators to understand your proposal solution

An afternoon of electives with your choice of tracks:

Track one, focus on fundamentals

  • Planning Your Proposal (Olessia Smotrova-Taylor)
  • Proposal Writing Basics (Gary Everett)
  • Introduction to Proposal Coordination (Joe Salgado)

Track two, compliance and accreditation

  • Don’t Lose Your Job Over This (Harriet Rabenovets)
  • APMP Accreditation (Brenda Crist)

A final session to help you avoid rookie mistakes:

  • Panel Discussion: 25 Things I Wish I Had Known (Olessia Smotrova-Taylor, Chris Simmons, Beth Schwartz, and Harriet Rabenovets)

So many benefits, and so easy to get them all.

  • Learn the most successful practices from the most recognized and respected proposal trainers in the industry, all in just one day away from the office.
  • Save money with a low registration fee that includes breakfast, lunch, and refreshment breaks.
