Congratulations to our Chapter Honors Recipients for 2021
The APMP Florida Sunshine Chapter initiated our Chapter Honors program in 2016 to publicly recognize chapter members who have raised the level of proposal professionalism, contributed to our organization and advanced the arts and sciences of our industry. In addition to acknowledging the accomplishments of our colleagues, the program also raises public awareness of the proposal profession within the business community at large.
Our Chapter Honors recognize members who have achieved advanced levels of APMP certification, certification in related disciplines (such as project and contract management), attainment of advanced academic degrees and contributions to our industry through formal presentations and proposal related publications. We are proud to announce that this year's Chapter Honors Class includes:
Wendy Aguilar of Tampa, FL, for achieving APMP Practitioner certification.
Leigh-Ann Dailey of Kingston Jamaica for achieving APMP Practitioner certification.
Carmel Lee of Florence, SC, for achieving both her PMI PMP and APMP Practitioner certifications.
Brina Shere, of St. Petersburg, FL for achieving APMP Practitioner certification.
Tiffany Travis of Apollo Beach, FL for achieving APMP Practitioner certification.
Rachel Thompson, of Jacksonville, FL for presenting the Ignite Talk, From Breaking News to Making Reviews at the 2021 APMP Bid & Proposal Con.
We would also like to congratulate Carmel Lee for being named the 2021 Mentor of the Year. Carmel has been VERY busy this year! She is a Sr. Proposal Developer for Companion Data Services. In addition to achieving her certifications she also found time to mentor her team’s new staff in APMP methodologies and get them started on their own certification paths. A native of South Africa, Carmel is a recently minted US Citizen.
Finally, it is with tremendous pleasure and with a great sense of gratitude for her service and leadership that we recognize Meghann Lewis as this year’s recipient of the Keller Award for Outstanding Chapter Service. Meghann has been a chapter officer for many years, serving as our chapter chair for the past six years. Under Meghan’s leadership the chapter membership has more than doubled, our recognition at global APMP events has flourished and the chapter received the coveted Stephen P. Shipley Award for Chapter of the Year. Meghann has the unique distinction of being a second generation proposal professional and is the founder of Vidar Consulting.
Please join the Board in congratulating this year’s awardees!
