Proposal Writing Basics

Ready to improve your proposal writing skills? Very few people count writing among their top skills, but it's important in the contracting arena. Here in Maryland, a Request for Proposal (RFP) is one of our most common procurement methods. Proposals that are written well can actually impact the evaluation, so make yours stand out. Join us for insightful tips to improve your proposal writing skills.

Our special guest is Tina E. Patterson, Principal & Owner of Jade Solutions, LLC.

Who should attend? Small, minority, women, and veteran business owners interested in enhancing their proposal writing skills.
