We’ve just returned from beautiful Atlanta, Georgia.  Earlier this week, two members of the iWave team had the pleasure of meeting prospect development professionals from across the eastern United States at the APRA Regional Conference (ARC) 2017.  Because we had such a great time, we wanted to share our #myAPRAstory about this great event.

Special highlights

Conference attendees were treated to good food, great hospitality by the hotel and APRA staff, and insightful professional development sessions.  Some of the highlights included:

  • Nick Sollog’s presentation on trends and innovations in prospect research;
  • Amy Carrier’s overview of the who, what, when, where, why, and how of development campaigns;
  • A call-to-action to bring researchers and fundraisers together, presented by Elizabeth Roma and Angie Stapleton; and
  • Dr. Molly Wasko’s analysis of how organizational culture shapes technology, and how to turn data into actionable insights.

iWave offered a toast to all the attendees at Monday night’s cocktail reception.  Also, on Tuesday afternoon iWave hosted a vendor session where we discussed new datasets, PROscreen, and more. Thank you to everyone who attended the session, and especially those who shared their thoughts and experiences with PRO.  If you missed the session and want to know more about our prospect research solutions, learn about PRO here.
