SPAC 20 a Big Success

More than 110 attendees enjoyed a day of learning and networking at SPAC 2017 on March 23, 2017 at the Cobb Energy Performing Arts Center in northwest Atlanta. The Carolinas, Florida Sunshine, and Georgia Chattahoochee APMP chapters co-hosted the full-day conference, welcoming attendees from across the southeast and beyond to help celebrate the 20th SPAC.

The twelve presentations challenged attendees to consider new ideas and approaches to shape their future success in proposal management and business capture. Click here to access the SPAC 2017 presentations.

On Wednesday, March 22, seven APMP members earned APMP Foundation certification by participating in the pre-SPAC Foundation Level Training & Examination workshop offered by Lohfeld Consulting. Another eight APMP members prepared for earning APMP Practitioner Certification in a pilot mentoring program jointly sponsored SPAC and APMP.

Nine Sponsors and Exhibitors supported SPAC 20, providing valuable information about the products and services they offer. SPAC attendees took advantage of this opportunity to learn about how these partners can support and enhance their day-to-day proposal management activities. Special thanks to the SPAC 20 Platinum Sponsors: Lohfeld Consulting Group and 123 Proposal Automation Software.

SPAC Hits 20 and Makes a Big Change!

The upcoming Southern Proposal Accents Conference (SPAC) will mark the 20th annual event targeted for APMP professionals across the Southeast (and beyond). The Georgia, Carolinas, and Florida Sunshine APMP chapters will again team together to celebrate the exceptional success of SPAC by looking at how we can apply best practices and new approaches for "Shaping Future Success."

The SPAC host chapters have recognized that September-November timeframe has become very popular for APMP regional conferences and symposia. As a result, attendees, presenters, and sponsors/exhibitors have to deal with increasing contention for their time and support in the fall.

In response, we are moving the next SPAC back to a spring date. The 20th Annual SPAC will be held in Atlanta on Thursday, March 23, 2017. SPAC will be again held at the Cobb Energy Performing Arts Center, which proved to be an excellent venue last year. Workshops will be planned for Wednesday, March 22, 2017 to help attendees avoid Friday travel.

Mark the date on your calendar now and stay tuned for future announcements as plans take shape. Even better, consider applying to be a presenter at the 20th Annual SPAC so that you can share your discoveries, best practices, and enthusiasm for Shaping Future Success for our profession, our organizations and clients, and each APMP member.
