The Apra-MN Subcommittees, made up of Apra-MN members, play an important role in attracting new members, planning events for networking and professional development and publicizing the function of prospect research as part of a successful fundraising operation. While the actual time commitment may vary depending on the specific projects, it often includes a monthly or bimonthly meeting to review the committee’s progress towards initiatives.
Serving on the subcommittees is not only a great way to extend and share your expertise, but it also offers a unique opportunity for you to develop professional relationships with your advancement colleagues, all while helping to grow the profile of prospect research.
