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.
