In January 2016, the Greater Houston Chapter and Lone Star Chapter of the Association of Proposal Management Professionals (APMP) merged to form the new Lone Star Chapter. This merger is an exciting step for all of our APMP members in Texas and surrounding states. Our combined leadership, resources, and experience will allow for tremendous growth, education, and networking opportunities for our members. We are all very excited about this new step forward for our chapter! For more information about our chapter, please contact Sonya Wooley at firstname.lastname@example.org.
For nearly two decades, the APMP Greater Houston Chapter drew professionals from all over the metropolitan area with members that included business development executives, proposal managers, capture managers, proposal writers and coordinators, and graphic artists. Our members work in many industries including oil and gas, energy, construction, engineering, and technology.
The APMP Lone Star Chapter was reestablished in 2008. The chapter attracted members from Dallas, Fort Worth, and surrounding cities, with members as far away as southeastern Oklahoma.
Our chapter meets at least six times a year in various locations throughout Texas, including Houston and Dallas, to network with other proposal professionals and hear featured speakers and presentations. Chapter programs help attendees stay current with proposal preparation and development practices, marketing and business acquisition strategies.
The Association of Proposal Management Professionals (APMP) provides opportunities through membership to gain valuable knowledge about business development and industry best practices to help you and your enterprise achieve high growth goals.
Our mission is to advance the arts, sciences, and technology of new business acquisition and to promote the professionalism of those engaged in those pursuits.
