Virtual Networking Event: Navigating proposal & orals responses under COVID-19

May 6 | 4 - 5:30pm EDT

Join Cella (formerly, Proposal Development Consultants) for our first virtual ProposalConnects social mixer and networking forum as we provide an opportunity to check in with your proposal peers to commune with like-minded professionals and to share your experiences and questions at large.

We are all facing different challenges, but one common concern that we’re hearing is the challenge of how to respond to government agency solicitations that are still being issued under traditional, “business as usual” parameters that require hard-copy submissions or in-person orals presentations.

In this Virtual Event we will cover:
  • How can government contractors navigate traditional RFP submissions and orals requests during COVID-19?

  • How do firms respond to differing directives from individual contracting officers within the same agency as far as moving to electronic submissions and alternative forms of orals presentations?

  • How do company executives and proposal team directors protect the health and safety of their staff and teams, without putting their firm at a potential competitive disadvantage?

  • How will health and safety concerns change the future of our work environment generally?

We are all navigating a new normal and this networking session doesn’t promise any definitive answers. Frankly, we’re all figuring this out together – so we encourage your participation to connect with your peers on a real-time basis to share any emerging suggestions and tips that will help the community at large navigate the procurement landscape under lockdown.

Your self-provided glass of wine is optional!

Note: This will be a Zoom video-enabled session, though participants may also choose to participate via voice-only. If your organization is not using a Zoom platform, we encourage you to use a personal account and equipment.
