The 2014 Mid-Atlantic Technical Communication Conference will be on Saturday, March 22 at the Giant Community Center in Willow Grove. Mark your calendars. We will be sending out a call for proposals soon!
Thursday, October 17, 2013 from 6:30 PM – 8:30 PM
Proposals – What to Say, How to Say It, and How Much to Charge
A proposal can be terrifying. If it is off-base, you probably just wrote yourself off the candidate list. What if you propose something too expensive? What if you underestimate the complexity of the project and quote a price that is too low? Conni will share some approaches that should make you feel more comfortable and confident when writing a proposal.
Conni will discuss the structure of a proposal template and how to adapt to different situations, such as Request for Proposal responses, Statements of Work, and Letters of Agreement. The audience is encouraged to bring their own questions – whether as a developer of a proposal or a developer of a Request for Proposal.
