Washington, DC, April 10, 2013 – The Association of Proposal Management Professionals® (APMP®) announced today that it now has more than five thousand members, a milestone that has been 24 years in the making.

the association of record for proposal, bid, capture, business development and graphics professionals, welcomed member number 5,000, a proposal/bid professional from the APMP UK chapter.

"Five thousand members is an incredible milestone, and we thank APMP’s Board of Directors and past Board members who contributed to this growth,” said Rick Harris, AMP’s Executive Director. "APMP’s new member outreach, marketing and overall awareness has increased significantly, and we are starting to see higher membership growth as a result.”

APMP is a community of proposal professionals who participate in all aspects of the proposal development lifecycle. Since its inception in 1989, APMP has offered professional development opportunities and educational sessions through its more than 25 global chapter events, online webinars and the annual conference, APMP’s Bid & Proposal Con, to be held May 28 – 31, 2013 in Atlanta, GA, USA.

Since June 2012 APMP membership has grown by 14 percent. Since January 2011 it has grown by 53 percent, making this one of the most sustained periods of growth in the association’s history. The sharp increase in APMP membership is directly attributed to:

  1. The rise of APMP’s Accreditation program, becoming the number one APMP membership driver.
  2. Instituting a tactical and concentrated membership recruitment and retention plan which includes recruitment through new lists and personal telephone calls to expiring members.
  3. APMP European chapters’ focus on selling more APMP Corporate memberships than ever before.
