APMP wants to build the next generation of bid and proposal professionals, who have intentionally chosen this rewarding profession while still in school.

What's In It For You?

Being a part of APMP, I get access to the knowledge and experience of great leaders and mentors from the community. I have learned a great deal from the webinars and conferences I attended on diverse topics from career progression in Proposal Management, trends (such as automation) in PreSales to achieving work-life balance, and handling burn-outs – all real-life experiences.
