Introducing the Apra Content Development Committee
Apra’s committees help drive the association’s mission and goals forward, and are comprised of dedicated volunteers who contribute their time, talents and efforts to various programs and initiatives.
Earlier this year, Apra created the Content Development Committee (CDC) to continue providing the membership and profession at large best-in-class content and learning opportunities. The role of the CDC is to plan, develop and deliver content that aligns with Apra’s strategic plan and supports its mission of serving professionals who strategically harness information and data to drive fundraising success for philanthropic institutions.
The CDC is the content creation hub for all of Apra’s content channels, including Connections, webinars via Apra University and Beyond Prospecting: The Apra Podcast. The CDC works in close partnership with other educational committees and implements content strategies recommended by the Education and Professional Development Committee (EPD).
Content from the CDC aligns to the domains in the Apra Body of Knowledge, critical to prospect development professionals, as well as innovative industry trends and issues. The committee also ensures that Apra’s content remains high quality, engages diverse perspectives and is responsive to member needs.
As the CDC starts its new committee year, the group welcomes suggestions from the Apra membership in regard to content that would be beneficial, contributor suggestions — self-nominated or otherwise — and more. Those interested can reach out to email@example.com to start a conversation.
Stay tuned for more from the CDC in the coming months, including Apra’s annual Best of Connections, a roundup of top-rated articles voted on by the committee, in early January.
