Washington, DC, January 10, 2016 – APMP, the only association for the bid and proposal industry, announced today that titles for its Executive Committee have changed as of January 1, 2017.
After 28 years, the APMP Board of Directors voted to change the titles to better represent traditional association titles, comply with best practices and better outline the responsibilities of the volunteer Board of Directors Officers. The new title changes include:
· APMP Chief Executive Officer (CEO) title has been renamed to APMP Chair
· APMP Chief Operating Officer (COO) title has been renamed to APMP Vice Chair
· APMP Past CEO title has been renamed to APMP Past Chair
The APMP Treasurer and Executive Director (non-voting) positions will retain their same titles.
“We made these changes to be consistent with association naming conventions and best practices,” said Kristin Dufrene, CPP APMP Fellow, APMP Chair and VP of Proposal Development at Engility Corporation. “The legacy titles served our organization for 28 years, but now that we have a team of paid staff who run the day-to-day operations of the association, we knew we needed to adjust. This change demonstrates our growth as an association and an industry.”
The APMP International Board of Directors unanimously voted on the title changes following a recommendation from the APMP Executive Committee. The title changes only affect the APMP International Executive Committee positions. Each chapter may still use their legacy titles as it sees fit and by approval of its own chapter board.
The changes will also be made in the association by-laws and will be ratified at the January 2017 Board meeting.
