Keynote Address by FranklinCovey:
Buried Alive - Human Productivity in the 21st Century
Unnecessary interruptions are consuming 28 percent of a knowledge workers' day. Knowledge workers indicate in survey results that 40% of their time is spent on irrelevant activities. In today's world of unlimited information, technology and opportunities, why is it that people are finding themselves more "buried alive" than ever before?
During this session participants will discover the 21st century's three key problems that are hindering the capabilities and potential of today's workforce and their dramatic "hidden costs" taking its toll on organizational results.
Will you survive the 21st Century workplace or will you be buried alive? If you are an APMP member, take advantage of the early bird pricing. Not yet an APMP member but should be?

APMP Nor'easters Drive to 300!
The Nor'easters are on the move...and you can help. We want to make sure that our message is getting out to all Proposal and Business Development professionals in the northeast. To do that effectively we are looking to grow our membership and our goal is to reach 300 members. Currently we are 249 Nor'easters strong. If you are wondering how you can help, the answer is very simple...refer your friends and colleagues in the Proposal and Business Development profession to APMP (and make sure they affiliate with the Nor'easters). To sweeten the deal a little bit, we are kicking off our membership drive contest (not that we are a competitive bunch or anything).
1st place ($50 Visa gift card)
2nd place ($25 Visa gift card)
3rd place ($10 Dunkin Donuts gift card)
The rules are simple:
The contest will run from now through September 5th (which will also coincide with the end of Proposal Expo early bird Registration)
In order to qualify for the contest you need to refer a minimum of 5 people who complete their membership with APMP and affiliate with the Nor'easters.
The Nor'easter who has the most completed referrals (min of 5) will get 1st place
So how do you refer a colleague? Click here for full instructions.
Step 1: Go to www.apmp.org and make sure you are logged in.
Step 2: Locate the links underneath My Profile on the right side of the page, click on Refer a Friend and fill out the form.
Step 3: Send an email to Arline Sewell and Mike Walsh to let us know you made a referral(s) so we can be on the lookout for the new members and update the leaderboard if your colleague joins APMP and affiliates with the Nor'easters.
