Welcome to your
Apra Carolinas chapter website!

Apra Carolinas (covering NC & SC) is a local chapter of Apra International, an international organization for professionals interested in prospect development.

Our goal is to facilitate education about the prospect development field, act as a central source of information about prospect development, encourage professional development and networking among our members, advance cooperative relationships, and support and promote ethical research practices.

 “If we knew what it was we were doing, it would not be called research, would it?" 

- Albert Einstein

Congratulations to the 2021 scholarship and grant recipients!

We are thrilled to announce that the 2021 Professional Development Scholarship was awarded to Bridgette Holley from Hope International who plans to use the award to attend PD2021 and other Apra opportunities. We are also delighted to share that Cathy McCracken of Thornwell, Inc. has moved to the Carolinas and plans to use the Road Trip Grant to visit another Apra Carolinas member and learn about prospect development in the Carolinas. Congratulations to both of these members! 

Share your talent

Do you have a unique process at your organization that you think others may like to hear about? Do people in your office come to you because of your expertise in a particular area? Would you care to share that talent in a low-pressure presentation? We are always looking for new (or seasoned) speakers to present webinars or conference content. If you are interested in getting involved, reach out to our Education Chair, Rachael Walker, or send us an email with your ideas. 

Follow our new LinkedIn Page

Did you hear the news? Apra Carolinas has a brand-new LinkedIn Page where we will be sharing announcements and other content relevant to Prospect Development professionals. We still have our members-only group, but encourage you to follow our new page as well!
