Showcasing stories of APMP veterans and the brightest bid & proposal minds in planet earth
Today's Guest Is Mitch Boretz
Mitch Boretz has been managing proposals for engineering research and education at the University of California, Riverside (UCR) since 1996. He helps faculty and researchers identify funding opportunities, develop pursuit plans, and write and submit winning proposals. He joined APMP in 1998 and became a Fellow, one of only a handful from the non-profit sector, in 2008. He has served on the APMP California board (and its predecessor Southern California chapter board)in many capacities over the years, and in 2010 he led an APMP task force on “rich media,” which sought to set standards for video and interactivity in proposals. Mitch’s group manages approximately 600 proposals per year to government agencies, industry, and foundations, producing about $50 million per year in grant and contract awards. Mitch has a bachelor’s degree in journalism from the University of Missouri and worked for about 12 years in newspapers before the transition to proposals. He is aiming to retire at the beginning of 2021 and is looking forward to working as a volunteer with small non-profit organizations on their grant needs.
