Survival 101 Seminar: Creating Best in Class Proposals

proposalDid you know that the average time a selection committee member spends reviewing a proposal is 3 minutes? This surprisingly short amount of time reveals the need for architecture firms to capture the reader’s attention in a powerful, persuasive manner. This workshop will provide you with the basic principles for developing a victorious proposal.

You will leave this seminar with:
• A strategy to pre-sell project pursuits
• A simple Go/No Go decision making process to maximize your best efforts on submittals
• Writing content that is highly client-centered
• Best practices for design and layout to convey a strong, unique message
• Proposal database to be more accurate and efficient in responses

Presented by Small Giants

Wednesday  – January 27, 2010
7:30 a.m.  – Registration (Continental breakfast will be provided)

Good morning and Happy Waning New Year!

For those whom I have yet to meet, my name is Kevin T. Morrow, AIA and I am the 2010 incoming President for AIA Arizona. I am the Principal of the Phoenix and Tucson offices of Gromatzky Dupree & Associates Southwest.

I have been training for this opportunity over the past four years under the tutelage of Ken Lufkin, AIA, Steve Lichtenberger, AIA, James Trahan, AIA and, most recently, Mark Patterson, AIA, gentlemen that have provided great leadership for our organization – leadership that I will strive to emulate.

I believe that collectively we were happy to see 2009 pass and we all recognize that our business climate did not improve with the change of the calendar. That said, your AIA leadership intends to continue to enhance membership programs that have been available. For a complete listing, please visit our recently updated website at www.aia-arizona.org.

In October of 2009, a group of our members reviewed and adjusted the current long-range plan – a plan that will be used as a guiding tool over the next year. 

As your President, I will make myself readily available to address your thoughts, ideas and concerns about your AIA Arizona.
For the active membership,  thank you for your efforts, and for those not so active, please consider joining us over the next few months. I know that you will enjoy the experience!
