We hold four general membership meetings open to APMP members and non-members and they are scheduled typically in March, June, September, and December. These meetings offer informative programs about various proposal development topics, provide APMP news, and allow for on-line networking. For the near future, the meetings will be held virtually through webinar/conference call resources. However, we may occasionally hold virtual/physical (hybrid) or physical meetings as our chapter membership grows. We hope you will join our chapter and actively support our activities. See you at our next general membership meeting (virtually speaking).
Join us for our first meeting of 2019!

Samantha will address how to create an easy-to-read proposal and measure readability.
Proposal reviewers are notoriously impatient but are often handed dense, complex proposals filled with jargon, acronyms, never-ending sentences, and mile-long paragraphs. There is a better way. In this session, you'll learn how to scientifically measure the readability of your proposal text. Then, you'll learn four easy ways to significantly improve readability. Bonus: You'll also learn how enhancing readability helps your proposals and deliverables comply with the Federal Plain Language Guidelines and the Plain Writing Act.
