Welcome to the Carolinas Chapter of the Association of Proposal Management Professionals (APMP).
Serving APMP members across the North and South Carolina region, our chapter was founded in 1998 by a small group of proposal professionals. Today we have grown to over 100 members who represent a broad array of national and international industries. The Carolinas Chapter has also been nationally recognized by APMP as an Outstanding Chapter for our active and consistent support of membership events and activities.
A Message from Our Chairperson
APMP Carolinas and Georgia Chapter Joint Webinar: Proposal Writing and the Eight-Second Attention Span
During the Lunch and Learn Webinar August 1, more than 75 APMP members learned from Lisa Pafe from Lohfeld Consulting Group about how to modernize our proposal writing to win in the digital age. Lisa shared how to use persuasive, attention-grabbing techniques such as calls to action to provide clearly relevant writing for customers. Lisa has kindly provided her presentation slides (see link, below), to be accessed by both participants of the Webinar and for those who were unable to attend.
SPAC 20 a Big Success
More than 110 attendees enjoyed a day of learning and networking at SPAC 2017 on March 23, 2017 at the Cobb Energy Performing Arts Center in northwest Atlanta. The Carolinas, Florida Sunshine, and Georgia Chattahoochee APMP chapters co-hosted the full-day conference, welcoming attendees from across the southeast and beyond to help celebrate the 20th SPAC.
The twelve presentations challenged attendees to consider new ideas and approaches to shape their future success in proposal management and business capture. Click here to access the SPAC 2017 presentations.
On Wednesday, March 22, seven APMP members earned APMP Foundation certification by participating in the pre-SPAC Foundation Level Training & Examination workshop offered by Lohfeld Consulting. Another eight APMP members prepared for earning APMP Practitioner Certification in a pilot mentoring program jointly sponsored SPAC and APMP.
Nine Sponsors and Exhibitors supported SPAC 20, providing valuable information about the products and services they offer. SPAC attendees took advantage of this opportunity to learn about how these partners can support and enhance their day-to-day proposal management activities.
