The APMP Fellows award is one of our association’s highest individual honors. The Fellows award recognizes individuals who have made significant contributions throughout their careers in the bid and proposal industry.
The award is open to all APMP members in good-standing who have belonged to the association for five or more years.
Selected nominees are judged and are inducted into the Fellows class once a year at APMP's annual conference, Bid & Proposal Con.
Related programs include APMP Awards and the 40 Under 40.
2018 Fellow Nomination Deadline
You have until Friday March 23, 2018 at 5:00 PM, EST, USA to nominate someone to become an APMP Fellow for the 2018 Class. Nominate yourself or someone to be recognized as an APMP Fellow right now.
Suggestions for Nominating
- Decide on who you think is the most deserving to become an APMP Fellow. It can be you.
- Write your nomination form from the perspective of why you should win. Give as many examples of significant contributions as you can.
- Let your words, examples of your actions and your reputation do the talking.
- Above all else, focus on significant contributions.
- Keep trying. This is a very selective award. Only three people are chosen every year. If you are not selected as an APMP Fellow the first time, keep trying. It usually takes several efforts to be selected because it is such an exclusive award. Nominations tend to be more focused on significant contributions over time.
Fellows Nominating Myths
- The more nominations submitted for a person, the better – That’s incorrect. Multiple nominations (more than two or three) hurt a candidate’s chance because it begins to look like a campaign. One should not campaign for the award – it is earned through action.
- The amount of time in the industry should help me be selected as an APMP Fellow – That’s incorrect. The only amount of time that matters is if you have been a member of APMP for five or more years. Your significant contributions to the industry are judged. Not your time in the industry.
- I should win an APMP Fellow award the first time out – That’s incorrect. It takes most nominees multiple times to win.
