"The Association of Proposal Management Professionals – National Capital Area (APMP-NCA) Mentor Protege program made a huge difference for me in my career. My mentor worked with me for two years to develop my confidence, strengths, and skills. During that time, I achieved Foundation Level certification, expanded my network, received two promotions, and greatly improved my capacity for skills and leadership development."

Strengthen Tomorrow's Workforce TODAY!

The APMP-NCA Mentorship Program is designed to engage leading proposal professionals to influence up-and-coming professionals and to provide personal guidance in a dynamic way.

As a mentor/mentee, your commitment is critical to the success of the program and the mutual benefit of your mentorship. Because of this, we ask that participants set aside time at least once per month to meet with your mentor/mentee. We further ask that you document your time (date, duration, main points of discussion, etc.) so APMP-NCA can accurately assess the structure, objectives, and outcomes of the program at the end of the year and also to earn CEUs.
