Apra-MN is a place to learn, teach, and to share with one another our talents and understanding. Each year, we hold an election for new board members. For the term beginning in January 2023, we have ONE opening for a new board member! Nominations will be accepted during the month of September 2022, and in October, a voting survey will go out to all current Apra-MN members.

Who can apply/be nominated?

    • Nominations are open to anyone who has been a current Apra-MN chapter member for one year or more, or to anyone who is a current member of a different Apra chapter who has ties and connections to MN (i.e. moving to the area, work at a MN-based organization, etc).

What are the expectations of a board member?

    • Serve a two-year term, beginning January 1st, 2023 and ending December 31st, 2024.
    • Attend monthly board meetings (held virtually for one hour)
    • Serve in a particular board role, either as an officer (President, VP, Secretary, Treasurer) or as a chair or co-chair for one of our key areas: Marketing/Communications, Membership, or Programming
    • Make a commitment to participate actively in Apra-MN activities, including regularly scheduled workshops and the annual conference
    • Represent the membership during discussions and decisions
    • Prepare for meetings, and review and comment on minutes and reports
    • Build working relationships with fellow board and committee members
    • Communicate with board members and volunteers outside of meeting time

What does a board member bring to the table?

    • Passion and enthusiasm for Advancement/Development, prospect research and management, and fundraising in general.
    • Willing to be a leader and ambassador for the chapter and our members.
    • A drive to make positive contributions and changes as the world of prospect development grows and faces new challenges.
    • A drive to bring diversity to our members through content, speakers, leadership, membership, and ideas.
    • A small commitment of time that is often encouraged by employers and counted towards everyday work commitments.

What Apra-MN is looking for in our new board member nominees is a passion for our work and a commitment to helping everyone grow in our industry. Introverts and extroverts alike make great board members! Not only does a board leadership position look excellent on your resume but it can also be a way to learn a new skill or help feed a passion. And it's a fantastic way to build a strong network in our industry outside of your current organization.

Please feel free to nominate yourself, or anyone else (if you nominate someone else, we'll notify them and see if they're interested!).
