Writing an RFP

What makes a good RFP?

When an organization is developing a Request for Proposal (RFP), it is of utmost importance to think of where you came from, where you are now, and where you would like to be in the coming years. Defining these essential requirements will ensure that you will find an AMC with the expertise and resources needed to manage and grow your association.
