15 for 12
Believe it or not, there are people who understand what you do. They know the challenges you face at work, and they know how tough it can be to balance work and life.
You are not alone.
You will find kindred spirits at APMP, and now is an excellent chance to experience what an APMP membership is like.
And if you choose to join, enjoy 15 months of membership for the price of 12.
Meet Your People
Connect with others in your chapter. Select any APMP chapter when you join - some host in-person events, some host virtual events, and some host both. Some offer weekly e-newsletters, scholarships (for APMP certifications and event registrations), and more. See a list and descriptions of our chapters
Attend APMP events to network both professionally and personally. Throughout the year, at multiple Bid & Proposal Cons and chapter-produced events, we witness significant connections between people who would've never met outside of APMP. Survey comments consistently report "the people I meet" as one of the top reasons they attend APMP events. Members enjoy discounted registration fees and advanced notice to take advantage of Early Bird rates.
Develop Your Career
Verify your knowledge and skills for your employer and yourself. APMP certification validates that you understand industry best practices, and for many members, it positively impacts their salary and/or organizational level in their company. Regardless, learning is often inherent with the preparation to earn each level of certification, so you'll likely pick up a few new tools along the way, too.
Be ready for your next Performance Review. Compensation reports from APMP provide current data directly from your peers and colleagues in this industry. The 2022 U.S. Compensation Report will be released before the end of the year. All are free to APMP members.
Enhance Your Skills
Ever get stuck on a proposal? Pick up some quick nuggets of advice. The searchable APMP Body of Knowledge contains a wealth of best practices, tips, and tools to help you move forward. It is entirely online, mobile friendly, and available 24/7/365. Free to APMP members.
Spend an hour with the best in the industry; experience their insight without leaving your office. About once per month, APMP offers a webinar about a relevant, popular topic presented by the industry's top speakers. After each live event, recordings are added to the archives and available for viewing at your convenience. Free to APMP members.
Learn something new, or be reminded of some practices you may have forgotten. Written for proposal people in the business/commercial sector (but just as valuable to people in the government sector), Writing Business Bids & Proposals for dummies has received positive reviews from both newbies and industry veterans.
Save Your Money
If you join now, you can experience APMP membership for 15 months for the price of 12.
