The Association of Proposal Management Professionals®(APMP®), announced today that Ginny Carson, CPP APMP, will lead the Board of Directors as the 2019 Chair. She ascends to the role after serving as Vice Chair in 2018.
Carson is the director of the business development resource center at Life Cycle Engineering and is based in Charleston, SC. She belongs to the Carolinas Chapter and has been a member of APMP since 2011.
“It’s an exciting time for APMP, and we’re grateful to have the passionate leadership Ginny brings to the table,” said Rick Harris, APMP’s CEO. “The board has engaged in comprehensive long-range strategy setting and she has the experience to set in motion the growth and expansion we will see in the coming years.”
Carson has been in the proposal management profession for 20 years, having started her career as a sales representative at National Print Group in 1998. She has since taken over a series of leadership roles and now serves Life Cycle Engineering’s seven lines of business in meeting the firm’s strategic growth targets.
“I’m honored to have the opportunity to give back to the profession in this capacity,” Carson said. “Since my days in sales, learning about and applying best practices to increase the bottom line has served both me and my employers well. In many cases, APMP’s resources have fueled those contributions. I see great opportunity in 2019 to expand the reach of APMP and enhance our members’ ability to positively impact their own careers and grow the business of their employers.”
In the coming year, Carson intends to bring to the association a strong focus on work-life balance, career-long professional development, and providing data industry teams can use to do their jobs better. The inaugural APMP Benchmark Report will be among the first projects APMP will launch during her term.
The 2019 Board began its year of service on January 1 with several new members, including Hélène Courard, who will serve as Treasurer, Hermann Dillmann-Pflüger, and Bruce Farrell.
APMP is led by its 14-person Board, which meets bi-monthly virtually and annually in person at APMP’s Bid & Proposal Con, this year in Orlando, Florida.
