(Dallas, TX) May 24, 2011 — Colleen Jolly, PPF.APMP, an owner of the 24 Hour Company in Falls Church, VA, was honored as the 2012 recipient of the Insight Award presented by the Association of Proposal Management Professionals (APMP®) for best article published in a 2011 issue of the Journal of the Association of Proposal Management Professionals (APMP Journal).

The award was presented to Ms. Jolly at APMP's Bid & Proposal Con 2012 First Annual Awards Dinner at the Dallas Sheraton on May 24, 2012 in Dallas, TX. Her winning article ran in the spring/summer issue of 2011 and was titled, "An American Abroad, The Story of One Small Business Expanding Internationally.” The article serves as a primer for small-to-medium businesses considering international expansion and provides a fascinating case study of the 24 Hour Company's international expansion outside the US."

"Given APMP's role in the international expansion of the proposal community, it is especially gratifying to see the Insight Award celebrate an article that described one contribution to that global reach,” said Ali Paskun, AF.APMP, the APMP Journal Managing Editor.

The Insight Award is presented annually at the APMP Conference to the author of the best article published in the APMP Journal the previous year. It is selected by the Journal staff; announced by Paskun; and is based on usefulness, reader feedback, and the ability of the author to clearly communicate and pass on to the reader knowledge that elevates the proposal industry.

"I am honored to have received this award which highlights the cross-cultural communication happening right now in the international bidding world. It is my hope that this helps other smaller companies make the plunge to learning and growing overseas," said Ms. Jolly.

This is the second year in a row that a Principal in the 24 Hour Company has won APMP's Insight Award. Mike Parkinson received the Award in 2011 his article called "The Science of Proposal Graphics.”

To be considered for an Insight Award next year, contact Paskun at to learn how you can submit an article for consideration in APMP's Journal.
