Our Next Meeting

Our next free virtual chapter meeting will be held December 7, 2017, 4-5PM ET.

Our very own Ruth Turman, CP APMP Fellow, aka “The Accidental Proposal Manager” introduces the idea of the “Proposal Management Survival Tool Kit,” a light-hearted (yet serious) approach to some of the more common pitfalls that frequently plague the human element of proposal teams and a fun means of keeping teams aware, proactive as opposed to reactive, and one way to bring a healthy dose of levity into an otherwise stressful time.
