A Preview of #ApraPD19 Education

Prospect Development features four days of industry-leading education with more than 1,000 prospect development professionals. Learn the tools and gain the connections you need to succeed in your role, this July 31 – August 1 in Phoenix, AZ. 

A few of our members highlighted education sessions that they are excited to attend this year:

Craig M. Leonard, University of Michigan: "Cross team collaboration is becoming increasingly important in fundraising and Prospect Development teams often lead the way in bringing teams together. In the session, Data Driven Strategies for Annual Giving, Nick Sollog will provide examples and techniques for specifically partnering with colleagues on Annual Giving teams and will help you to create a roadmap for success.  If you are looking for strategies to help partner with your organization's Annual Giving team, this is a session you will not want to miss.

Lindsey Nadeau, The George Washington University: "I recommend adding $6 Billion Plan to your agenda. Attendees will get an insider glimpse into one of the biggest campaign shops around! From data mining to research services, you'll gain strategies for a successful campaign."

Marissa Todd, The Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art: "Beyond Capacity: Wrangling Ratings for Fundraising Success is an interesting topic that covers more than the usual ratings we look at. The presenters are both great speakers so we know it will be an entertaining and educational session."

Elias Mendelson, City of Hope: “International research can seem intimidating so we can’t wait to hear the takeaways and advice from Georgetown about what resources to use and how we can implement a process to identify potential international prospects. We will be adding International Wo(men) of Mystery to our schedule!”

Stephanie L. Iverson, University of South Florida: "There is difficulty in being assertive and at the same time having good customer service. My struggle as a director is not getting the seat at the prospect management table or any other meeting where development officers are discussing their prospects and initiatives. Empower Yourself to Improve Gift Officer Relationships will help improve the collaboration between prospect development professionals and development officers, at every level."
