APMP Pacific Northwest Chapter Scholarships

APMP Pacific Northwest Chapter has TWO
Scholarship Opportunities!

In case you haven’t heard, the Pacific Northwest Chapter participated in the APMP “15 for 12” Chapter Growth promotion at the end of 2019.


As part of our prize package, we are able to offer TWO conference registrations this year. Here’s the scoop…


Opportunity #1: Our 4th Annual Lee Hendrickson "Gentle Giant" Scholarship - valued at $950.00

Lee Hendrickson, APMP PNW Chapter Founder

Lee Hendrickson founded the Pacific Northwest (PNW) chapter in 2009 and was a champion in our industry; a man known amongst our tribe as a gentle giant. He was a leader, a fellow, a mentor, and a professional committed to excellence and service. Rick Harris, Executive Director, APMP, shares, "So many of us experienced Lee’s legacy and passion for business excellence and sharing his knowledge with others. He readily served as a mentor to the membership, routinely providing support and wisdom to everyone.”

To recognize Lee and ensure his legacy lives on within APMP forever, the PNW chapter instituted in 2017 The Lee Hendrickson “Gentle Giant” Scholarship, which is intended to recognize an industry professional who, like Lee, has a passion for business excellence and influencing proposal professionals. In line with Lee’s drive for continuing education and development, we will be gifting one of our chapter members with the opportunity to advance their own skills through the hands-on education and networking opportunities presented at the 2020 APMP Bid & Proposal Conference.

This year’s conference is taking place May 17-20 in Nashville, Tennessee. The winner will have his/her three-day registration fee paid for by the scholarship. The selected chapter member will be responsible for all other expenses (travel, hotel, meals outside of the conference, etc.). We ask only one thing of you, if you win: be our eyes and ears on the ground and commit to sharing your conference experience with those chapter members unable to attend this year’s conference. This can be as simple as attending one of our Coffee Talk sessions and writing a spotlight article for our monthly newsletter, or being creative and filling our chapter member’s social media feeds with real-time updates and #gentlegiant hashtags.
So don't delay; submit your application today for the Lee Hendrickson “Gentle Giant” Scholarship!
