Share your love of Prospect Development with us! 

We want to celebrate your innovative, creative, and unique prospect development projects by sharing your work here in the Networker. Are you working on a project that has required you to think outside of the box or employ some unique research methods? Prospect development is an ever-changing industry whose target is always a moving goal and we know that in order to produce the research or strategic insight necessary to move a prospect forward, we've scoured every type of media (from old news articles in local papers to TikToks). But in some cases, information is harder to find and it takes digging a little deeper to find that helpful piece of information! 

If you have a project that you are interested in highlighting in a future Networker, submit your ideas below and we'll contact you to work on an article!

There are other opportunities to share your work with Apra-MN through Buzz Sessions and Lunch & Learn webinars so if an article is not the best way to present your work, you can still submit your project and indicate your interest in other presenting options.
