Congratulations to Michelle Spencer, CF APMP, and Paul Lockwood, CF APMP, who both won a pair of Bose Frames audio sunglasses in our prize drawing at APMP BPC 2021 in Denver last week! #ProudToBeAPMP!
APMP’s event was a great success and allowed capture and proposal development professionals to meet again in person after last year’s virtual event. Hundreds of attendees enjoyed two and a half days of presentations and workshops, keynote speakers, and social events. Our VP of Corporate Support, Dick Eassom, CF APMP Fellow, delivered his popular “Wordman’s Microsoft Word Q&A Workshop” again to a large, interactive group for nearly two and a half hours. In his capacity as Chair of the APMP Western Chapter, Dick also received APMP’s Chapter Leader of the Lead award for 2021, which he shares with Lisa Rehurek, Chair of the former APMP Valley of the Sun Chapter for their work merging the California and Valley of the Sun chapters to form the new Western chapter.
One of our VPs of Business Development, Darren Durkee, CF APMP, took part in APMP’s final day Ignite session, engaging the audience with “Landing in and loving the bid and proposal business,” and receiving well-deserved applause.
Along with Dick and Darren, our booth at BPC was ably staffed by Heather Kirkpatrick, CP CAP APMP, Patty Malhabour, CF APMP, Greg Ward, CF APMP, and our COO, Jacque Keats, CF APMP.
We had a very warm reception to our introduction of free capture and proposal training, and to our SMA TOD critters, which were adopted by APMP members! We’d love to see where our critters end up, so tag us on social media, #SMAZOO, with your posts!
