2015 marks the 10th Anniversary of the re-launch of the Nor'easters Chapter! We are harnessing that excitement to help invigorate the chapter this year!!

At the beginning of this year the board of directors held a strategic planning meeting where we laid out our goals for the year. We have two primary goals this year:
1. Provide more value to our members through our offerings, meetings, and LinkedIn discussions
2. Drive membership. Increasing membership benefits all of us, it increases our funding and thus increases our ability to offer great programs and improve on our existing events, it provides a deeper network of proposal professionals to share ideas, best practices and help solve problems, and it provides a place for the many proposal professionals out there who feel like they are going it alone and help them, to paraphrase Robin Davis a bit, "find their people!"

We have some great events planned this year – Join Us!
