APMP Member Testimonials

Don’t just take our word for it: APMP is the first, best and only professional association for proposal professionals in every part of the business development lifecycle. Read some of the things APMP members have to say about their association and why they belong to APMP.

 

"I want to thank you for putting together such a worthwhile event. The quality of the panelists really made the event: Office of Small & Disadvantaged Business Utilization, Department of State, federal contracting officers, and other agency personnel answer questions was extremely pertinent and relevant to our work. The questions and topics were right on the mark. Thanks for putting together a fantastic conference. As an 8(a) woman-owned small business, we appreciate the opportunity not only to network but also to learn from federal agency staff."
–Rachel LaVoie, Project Manager, AP Ventures, USA, after attending the APMP Capture and Business Development Conference

"Thank you and your team for a wonderful conference. I found it very informative and definitely would attend again. What's more, this conference really helped me get to know APMP, and I am very excited to soon become a member of your organization."
–Nicole, Tripodi, Sr. Business Development Analyst, Chenega Applied Solutions (CAS), USA, after attending the APMP Capture and Business Development Conference


"APMP has provided an excellent framework in which our team members have noticeably developed, improved and grown. Central to this is a real feeling of a community – focused on knowledge sharing and promoting best practices. We aim for our proposal contributors to be APMP certified to at least Foundation level, and this has been shown to result in a much better understanding of the bid qualification and production cycles – resulting in fewer but higher quality proposals.”
–Daryl Blair, Head of Bid Management, Sony Professional Solutions, Europe


"The entire APMP Certification process, from the very early preparation for the Foundation exam through the Professional interview, has been a great experience. So often in our work there’s no time for reflection. The APMP Certification process forces you to stop and evaluate not only what you’ve done in the past, but also how that has worked, how you can improve, and how you can be greater use within our profession.”
–Peggy Dufour, Manager, Reston Proposal Center, Bechtel National, Inc., USA

 

"Being part of APMP is invaluable. It offers a wide range of opportunities to meet, learn, develop and improve in all aspects of the bid process to keep up with innovation and best practice. Knowing the value of our bid managers' role with a professional career development path is motivating, empowering, and helps deliver true added value to the organization.”
–Matthew Denchfield, CF APMP, Bid Team Manager, Bid Team, Canon (UK) & Ireland

 
"APMP has grown in size, stature, and professionalism. At APMP you can get real answers to real problems from people who care and share. Even though we are now over 6,000 strong, I still feel the one-on-one availability and access, which make this group so outstanding.”
--Deborah Carlson, Senior Proposal Manager, Contract Winning Proposal Writer and Manager, USA

"As a former Board member and current APMP Fellow, I was recently invited to evaluate proposals for a significant  APMP project. I am still very proud to be a member. I made lasting contacts and have benefited in untold ways throughout my career.”
–Nancy Cottle, APMP Fellow, The Branded Image, USA


"That APMP webinar was one of the best I ever attended. The presenter was a great speaker, and the content was outstanding. I even winced on several occasions, with flashbacks of me doing things not to be done. Two hours earlier, I participated in another webinar by another professional society that was little more than 35 densely-packed slides recited verbatim by the presenter. Thank you.”
–Thomas E. Burke, Ph.D., PMPTEB Consulting Inc., USA

 
"This was my third APMP conference, and this was the best yet. The presentations I attended were all very relevant and well presented. I gained insight as to what happens on the government side of procurement and witnessed the disconnect between the government and contractors. I'm eager to follow government involvement through the APMP Procurement Improvement Committee (PIC) initiatives to collaborate."
--Angela Burney Wicke, MPA, Life Cycle Engineering


"I'm a proposal professional. APMP is the place where people I respect and admire are recognized and understood in the context of what we do for a living. I've found people who speak my language, share common values, face similar challenges, and have shared goals. APMP is my professional home."
–Ruth Turman, CF APMP Fellow, Senior Proposal Manager, Companion Data Services, USA

 

"From my perspective as exhibitor, sponsor, presenter and attendee I give APMP Bid & Proposal Con five stars across the board." 
--BJ Lownie, Strategic Proposals
