APMP January Update:

As we relaunch the EXEC Direct Report, we want to share with you items that your association has focused on in your behalf in January 2017.

  • Three New APMP Board Members: We welcomed Mike Walsh, CF APMP, Ernst & Young, Nor’easters Chapter; Krishnakumar Iyer, CP APMP, MindIT Learning Pvt. Ltd., India Chapter; and Todd Barnett, Shipley Associates, Colorado Chapter.  They joined in January 2017 and their two-year term will run through December 31, 2108.
  • Writing Business Bids and Proposals Dummies Book a Huge Hit: In 2016 we partnered with Wiley Publications and produced several promotions for APMP’s Writing Business Bids and Proposals for Dummies book. In just seven months of marketing 1,038 APMP members and 92 non-members bought the book for a sales totaling 1,130.   U.S.A book sales accounted for 77 percent of all sales.  Look for promotions targeted to our European members in the coming weeks.
  • APMP Long Range Plan Goals Approved – APMP Board members completed their 2017 Long Range Plan which will focus on the following 2017 goals:
    • Create new individual and corporate member promotional videos for APMP and chapter use
    • Conduct an APMP Member Survey
    • Create Compensation Surveys and Reports in two countries outside of the US
    • Stand up separate Membership and Marketing Committees
    • Study ways to re-purpose thought leader content and push it out to related industries to help educate potential members about the bid and proposal profession and its industry
