Happy New Year!

A very warm welcome to a new year and new decade!

As I take the APMP UK Chair, I would first like to thank Mel Smith for her hard work during 2019, in particular the launch of the Professional Development Programme, Rapport.

Here, and throughout the year, I will be communicating with you about key activities being worked on by the Board as part of our ever growing transparency.

APMP UK Membership Engagement Survey

At the start of my tenure, together with the Board, I will review APMP UK’s 3-year plan to ensure we continue to deliver projects and benefits for our membership beyond the standard benefits. To assist this, in December 2019 we launched the APMP UK Membership Engagement Survey. The results of this survey will be analysed and form the basis of the Board’s Strategy Workshop in February. To make sure efforts and membership dues are best invested, please complete the 5-10 minute survey if you haven’t done so already. The survey can be completed on a computer, tablet or mobile Here.


We are very pleased to announce that our first cohort of mentors for the APMP UK Rapport programme have been selected and will undertake their mentor training in February. We will be opening the application process soon for members looking for a mentor, so please look out for this announcement via email, on LinkedIn and Twitter.


Our events schedule kicks off this month with The Big Bid Conversation in Nottingham. Jon Williams will lead the unique session giving APMP members the chance to talk TO one another. Head over to our website to register for this event and others, and be sure to download the official APMP UK events app, available for Apple and Android.


As Mel announced last month in her end of year communication, the APMP UK Conference 2020 will be held on Tuesday 13th and Wednesday 14th October, with another Professional Development Day on Monday 12th. Save the date now and start highlighting the benefits of attending to both your team and line manager. More details will follow soon.

I hope to meet as many as you as I can over the year at one of our many events. Please contact either myself of a member of the Board if you have any questions or comments about APMP UK.
