Welcome to the Greater Houston Chapter of APMP!
For nearly two decades, our chapter has served the Greater Houston area. We continue to draw professionals from all over the metropolitan area with members that include business development executives, proposal managers, capture managers, proposal writers and coordinators, and graphic artists. We work in many industries including oil and gas, energy, construction, engineering, and technology.
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.
We offer numerous events and activities through the year to promote networking, and professional growth and development. General meetings are held the first Wednesday of every other month February to December from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Board Meetings are conducted the first Wednesday of every other month January to November.
December was an exciting month for Houston APMP members! On December 3rd, Dick Eassom, a Director at SM&A, a certified APMP Fellow, past APMP Chief Executive Officer, and recipient of the APMP Founders’ Award, presented an exciting discussion on using Microsoft Word for proposal development. We have posted the presentation on our Member page under Past Presentations.
