APMPĀ® is the worldwide authority for professionals dedicated to the process of winning business through proposals, bids, capture, business development and presentations. APMP is a non-profit membership organization founded in August 1989 and began with 28 charter members. Today, the Association has nearly 6,400 members and is frequently growing in 27 active chapters worldwide.

The APMP ANZ Chapter was formed in late 2008 and is dedicated in particular to increasing recognition in this region of the value of professional proposal development. The ANZ Chapter is for all proposal professionals in Australia and New Zealand, and also for those in the Asia Pacific region where no local APMP chapter currently exists.
