Association Accomplishments to be Celebrated at New Orleans Conference

The Association of Proposal Management Professionals® (APMP®) announced today its annual award winners for accomplishments and contributions in 2016. These notable individuals and chapters will be celebrated at the association’s upcoming 2017 Bid & Proposal Con, which will take place next week in New Orleans.

“As the association and the profession continues to grow and evolve, it becomes increasingly difficult for our judging panels to select just one winner in each category,” says Rick Harris APMP Executive Director, APMP. “This year’s winners stand apart from the field for their dedication to excellence on behalf of the profession. APMP award winners are the industry’s best.”

Proposal and bid management professionals from 22 countries around the globe will gather for the Future of the Industry Celebration, where APMP will recognize its award winners for accomplishments in 2016, welcome its 2017 Class of APMP Fellows (which will be announced on-site in New Orleans), and its inaugural 40 Under 40 winners.

APMP also recently announced the inaugural class of 40 Under 40 winners, a program designed to recognize contributors who are young but have already made a noticeable impression on their companies and the overall profession. The 2017 class features global proposal/bid managers noted for winning big, revamping processes, facilitating teamwork, and giving back to their communities.

“We look forward to celebrating all of these award winners next week in New Orleans,” adds Harris. “We want to have the opportunity to thank them in person for their efforts to shape the future of the proposal management profession.”
